In respect to this, how do you install a push pull throttle cable?
How to Install a Motorcycle Throttle Cable
- Determine the length of cable needed and the proper route for the throttle cable to follow.
- Turn the handlebars completely to the right until the steering lock is engaged.
- Install the accelerator cable (pull cable) onto the throttle housing, running the cable end into the mounting hole farthest from the rider.
Subsequently, question is, how do throttle cables work? Motorcycle throttle cables consist of two steel cables that run from the grip of the throttle to the engine, to open and close the carburetor. Drivers use these two cables, the front cable and the idle-hand throttle cable, to accelerate the bike, just like a pedal is used to accelerate a car.
Similarly one may ask, how does a push pull cable work?
Push Pull Cables, Light Duty. Push Pull Cable Definition: Manually operated control using a solid wire inner member moving inside an outer conduit (tubing), used to push and pull a mechanism on the opposite end. Sometimes a rigid construction inner 1x7 cable can be used instead of a solid wire.
Why does my bike have two throttle cables?
A push/pull throttle cable is an upgrade to the old standard single throttle cable linkage. The second cable pulls the carb closed so it isn't stuck wide open. On a road race bike at 165mph+ approaching a tight turn with little run off area, riders want that peace of mind that if they close the gas, it will close.
