Throttle cable routing, 1976 GL1000

Post by Saltspringer »



I am reaching the end of my restoration and now want to hook up the throttle cables to my newly rebuilt carbs. The previous owner had a home made, single, throttle cable, which I have replaced with a proper push/pull set up.

My question is, how are these two cables supposed to be routed to the carbs, so the drag is minimized and you get the lightest action? If anyone also has any advice regarding cable adjustment once installed, I would be very appreciative!

Here's the diagram I have, showing the throttle cables as item 12:
