    Throttle Push Cable

    Can someone pls tell me what the throttle push cable is actually for? I rode my friend's NT with the push cable missing and the throttle action is way better than my bike with 2 well lubed cables. I'm new to the forum and did a search on this - if I missed it I apologise but I'd like to ask before I go ahead and remove my push cable also.

    so when you close the throttle, the cable has a positive way of closing.

    otherwise, you're relying completely on the return spring...

      So when owners fit a "quick throttle" (I've read where the stock throttle from an RC51/SC45 will fit onto the Hawk and there's an HRC 1/6 kit available) do they use 1 cable or 2?

        every OEM streetbike throttle ive seen has 2 cables.

        some racebikes and dirtbikes only have one.

          so, am I stupid to put a throttle with only one cable for the street? I wouldnt mind the simplicity of it and the cleaner look of the wiring/cable cluster

              I know I'm reviving an old thread, but I have the same issue, except my bike came with only the pull cable (didn't have the choice in removing it). Should I be concerned and not ride until I find another cable. I did one 100 mile ride without a problem. It wasn't until I came home and started working on my carb problem that I notice the single cable. Please explain reasons for double cable and not just the word safety. I know I will get a more positive closing action, but it seems that the return spring is strong enough to pull it back without the drag of a second cable. Please let me know if you have any experience running this setup and any good or bad experiences. Thanks,

                It's not so much a question of whether or not the return spring is strong enough to pull the throttle back - obviously it is.

                However, should the return spring break/fail for any reason, my understanding is that the second cable provides a "redundant system" in the event of such a failure - allowing you to close the throttle with a reverse twist of the grip.

                All the best,
