Thread: Throttle Cable/Bracket Install

  1. #11

    Default

    This bracket completely fixed my issue of the touchy throttle, but I’m waiting on a spacer for the base. I need another half inch, so the new bracket will not hit the air cleaner base.

    I first tried what was suggested here, and extending the linkage arm up a bit (1/2") by bolting on a small plate, but then I was hitting my drop base air cleaner that I need for hood clearance. So I raised the cable connection point by 1/2" instead. This made the touchy throttle syndrome MUCH better, still just a hint of a "hump" in the throttle, but really only because I'm looking for it, not sure I would have noticed otherwise.

    I just used some 1/2" square stock, welded into a C, ground smooth, then welded on the throttle connection point on top, and 700R4 connection point on the bottom. I also did not like how the stock bracket could pivot using only one bolt to hold it down. Yes, there was a stop bent into it, which only allowed it to pivot so far, and generally was under spring pressure, but still. This one is overkill, but does not budge.
