    I threw away the push cable years ago.I always take the cable off, never once removed the plate.It's important to know how to adjust the freeplay in a throttle cable.Simple to adjust.
    You want the throttle to close completely.....and you want a bit of play before it moves the butterflies.

      Done.

      Well that was not too bad although that silly front choke cable is fun to install huh...? I finally popped the carbs back off and screwed it in before putting the carbs on the rubber runners.

      So, Stock can, stock #42 Low speed jets, DJ Needles and DJ 136 Mains, drilled the Slide lift holes, new air filter. Runs friggin' awesome. Nice, smooth rideability.

      I plan no other mods at least at this time and it is wicked good fun to ride again.

      Thanks all,
      Rob








      Just ride it...

        (That's what most go by here when quoiting jet sizes) ie: a 165 Keihin = 150 Dynojet

          SPA Bart, have you confirmed this reference chart since you keep posting it?

          Please remember these two posts, which to me means that the chart above should not be posted without below comments until verified:

            JanM yeah sorry i know ive made that mistake before and I've actually met Marc Salvisberg when he tuned my VFR. I always seem to forget the link below is the proper one to post. Ill hop over there and see what i can do to strengthen it up some.

            As usual, thanks for setting me straight.

              Huh, I always remove the two "phillips" screws (they are JIS!) with a JIS screwdriver that hold the cable bracket on. I do this after removing the carbs from the boots. This way I don't have to adjust the slack on the cables....installation is the reverse. Put the cable end barrels on the carb throttle first, then screw the bracket on. No fuss. No readjustment. I do the same with the VFRs.

                  ^^^
                  Yup, did just that with the addition of threading the front carb choke into place prior to setting the carbs onto the boots. Well, the second time...
