Throttle Cable Fix

Here's a simple fix I made on my DL1000 (30 miles!). I noticed that the throttle cable would "snag" itself a little on front brake resevour when turning the bars to the right. And it was even worse after I adjust the cables to remove the extra slack, where turning the bars to the right would open the throttle slightly even when the cables were not "snagged" on the resevour. So to fix it I simply cut out a small notch in the hand gaurd to allow the throttle cable assembly to be moved farther forward then you normally can:

Keep your feet on the pegs and your hand on the throttle.
