broken throttle fix
Apparently the thumb throttle lever breaking near the pivot pin is very common on these older machines. My son broke his off yesterday, shortly after we got to the lake. I had an older Tigershark sitting there for parts so I did a little parts swapping. The Tigershark has a finger pull lever VERY similar to a Yamaha but more beefy. I had to drill out the hole that the cable sits in and tap it for the Polaris threaded adjuster. Then I removed 3 screws on the handlebar cover and popped it open to put the cable out to the finger side. Hardest part was drilling a hole through the stainless steel handlebars for the throttle assembly set screw. Now the old SL650 has a tough little finger pull assembly.

Good idea. I need to do that with mine, it broke last time on the lake and I had to glue and epoxy it back together until I can replace it. I might do something like this.
