In an attempt to swap out handlebars, I've hit a snag at the right side throttle controls, opening the throttle housing reveals a very tight throttle cable that doesn't want to come out easily. Has anyone any advice?

Not exactly sure where your experiencing the tight fit, but, if you remove the housing, you should be able to turn the entire throttle assembly on the bar to gain some extra room/slack in the cable. Turning the wheel to the right, or rotating the handlebars towards the instrument cluster can also by an extra inch or so. I rotate the tube down to remove the upper cable, then up to remove the remaining cable.

Put more slack in the line by using the slack adjuster on one of the cables.

Loosen the throttle but don't split it or remove it. Unbolt the bars. Remove the bars while keeping the throttle more or less where it was, in other words, pull the bars out of the throttle.

Remember when you install new bars you either need to drill the locator holes for the controls to sink into, or file the locator pins off the controls.
