Hello fellow GW Riders!!

Post by michaelmaerz » Thu Nov 01, 2012 2:42 pm

New to the site after I was researching how to change the Push/Pull Throttle cables on my 91 GW Interstate. It was harder dealing with the vendow that I usually get my parts from than it was to replace the cable. They (name withheld to protect the guilty) sent me 2 cables, but 1 was 6" too short. Luckily it was the one that hadn't broken and I really didn't need, but still, if I was in there up to my elbows, I wanted to change both.

All in all had the job done in about 4 hours. No dropped screws, and limited cursing. Sucess!! Now to get Huricane Sandy outa here so I can ride to work again!!

Ride Safe!!

"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

I've got that on my "to do" list for this winter - I'll photograph and document it as I go.

I got my cables (OEM) from through Cyclemax, so I expect they will be of the correct length. :)
