Long story short, had to take off the throttle body assembly on my 2006 Vee, which required removing the throttle cables from the throttle body assembly. The disassembly went great! However, now that I’m trying to reassemble everything, I can’t seem to get the throttle cables figured out...

I checked the manual and many threads to find a solution, but haven’t had any luck. I have the proper cables in the proper “slots” on the throttle body assembly, and they are seated to what I believe to be correct, but when I try to turn the throttle it is very difficult, and then it won’t return on its own at all! I have tried tightening and loosing both the throttle return cable and the throttle pull cable, but I can’t seem to find a spot in either cable adjuster that makes a significant difference of resolves the issue! I have not touched the minor adjusters up near the throttle itself, and I didn’t touch them when I removed the throttle cables.

I have checked to make sure that the cables aren’t binding anywhere, and that the cables were not kinked. So, I have no idea what the issue is.

So, can anyone help me figure this out?

PS: In the picture you can see the throttle body assembly is taken out the cylinder boots. This is just for ease of access and adjustment

Maybe you actually have the cables reversed in that picture? (I see you have tape on them, so maybe not.)

Post up a picture or two of where the cables go around the "drum".

If nobody comments before I get home later tonight, I'll post up a couple pictures of mine...I just took the TBs off but have left the cables attached, so they're in their stock positions.

Well I looked at the manual and made sure the correct throttle cables were in each spot, and when I had them off I pulled the throttle in and out and saw the action of each cable to make sure that I had the right cables in each spot. So I’m really dumbfounded as to what the issue might be! Maybe I’m overlooking something?

Here are some more pics:

The issue has been solved! I spent hours trying to find this problem and fix it. I call my dad and he comes over: in 30 seconds he grabs ahold of both cables, tells me to twist the throttle back and forth, and “click” all of a sudden there’s more slack and the throttle is turning the way it should be—hah!! We’re guessing that one or both of the cables must have been bound somewhere inside of the casing where I couldn’t see, and when he pulled them while I twisted they must have broken free.

Just another example proving you never stop needing your dad’s help!

For good measure, I took apart my throttle and cleaned everything/lubed it all, and now it snaps right back in place even better than before. Now just a few slight tweaks in free play adjustment and I should be good to go!

Thanks for your input and help!

Take care ,

Tanner
