    650 sx throttle cable replacement

    Anyone have a trick to replacing the throttle cable on a 650 sx? I taped the old one to the new one to pull it through the handle pole but cant get it passed the bottom of the handle pole. Any tips would be great. Thanks...Brad...

    Try tying a string to the old one and pull the string through. Once you have the old one out tie the string to the new one and pull it through. Dont man-handle the string as it might break. If it gets hung up use a back forth motion alternating pulling cable and string. Sometimes you can twist the cable as you are pulling the string too. I just did a steering cable in my 89, and it was a chore. Took me about and hour or so. Just be patient. Also I assume you are pulling it down the hand pole into the engine compartment.
