Throttle Control System Inspection
Throttle Grip Play Inspection
• If the free play is incorrect, adjust the throttle cable (see below).
Throttle Grip Free Play Standard: 2 ~ 3 mm (0.08 ~ 0.12 in.)
• Check that the throttle grip moves smoothly from close to full open, and the throttle closes quickly and completely in all steering positions by the return spring.
• If the throttle grip doesn't return properly, check the throttle cable routing, grip free play, and cable damage. Then lubricate the throttle cable.
• Run the engine at the idle speed, and turn the handlebar all the way to the right and left to ensure that the idle speed doesn't change.
• If the idle speed increases, check the throttle grip free play and the cable routing.
• If necessary, adjust the throttle cable as follows.
• Turn the adjuster [B] until the proper amount of free play can be obtained.
• Tighten [C] the locknut against the adjuster securely.
• If the throttle grip free play cannot be adjusted with the adjuster, use the adjusters in the middle of the throttle cables.
• Loosen the locknut, and screw the adjuster at the upper end of the accelerator cable all the way in.
• Tighten the locknut against the adjuster securely.
• Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel System (DFI) chapter).
• Loosen the locknuts [A], and turn the lower adjusters [B] until the proper amount of throttle grip free play is obtained.
• Tighten the locknuts against the adjusters securely.
• If the throttle grip free play cannot be adjusted with the lower adjusters, use the adjuster at the upper end of the cable again.
