76 GL throttle cable PO misrouted

Post by flyday58 »



So the PO routed the throttle cables down the right side of the frame. I used the Honda manual to reroute them but haven’t found any pics of the end routing. This seems to be correct, or do they go somewhere else?

So new cables came in, anyone have a picture of where to route them at the carbs? Both ways seem to put too much bend in the ends.

They should go under the tach, around the front of the steering head, between the left side of the shelter support and the airbox, and turn at the rear of the airbox to the carbs. Your picture shows them coming in properly.

Thanks, that’s what I ended up doing. Figured out not to trap the cables under the air cleaner, makes a diff.
