How did your throttle cable get to look like that?

No idea. I got the bike last August, and discovered the throttle cable was like that on a ride in September. Was kind of a fluke too, just pulled the plastic cap to see if anyone had done the o-ring mod, and was like .

Well that sucks. Do you have the FSM? Seems like it was pretty good at step by step instructions for all the pieces. But maybe long term you'll get a better setup for your size/weight with a bit of professional assistance.

I have the WP fork manual, Bruce sent it to me. It's pretty good, but low resolution so tough to zoom in to see what the order of things is to be on the exploded drawing. I messed up and put the flat washer in after the fork seal, I also realized I did in fact create the angle it had, it's supposed to be flat. That was caused by trying to pull the fork apart without removing that snap ring- I really didn't pull that hard either. But it bent back flat very quickly on the vice, was about as easy as a star washer from a hub. At any rate, it's deformed now, fubar.

The quote I got over the phone was $110 labor plus parts. And yes, he'll be able to dial it in better for my weight/style/etc. than I ever could have.

Default got it together

Well life did its best to stand in the way, but alas I managed to get it all together after all. Took it for a spin around the neighborhood tonight and must say it's running quite a bit better... looking forward to getting out on some dirt.

New throttle cables
Carb refresh, plus JD jet kit set to 6000-9000' (red needle 4th slot 168 main), red fuel screw upgrade, o-ring mod
New tires
new oil, new filters
rebuilt front forks- including new springs that are heavier than stock but lighter than the "heavies" I had originally.
some armor all

Let's ride!
