    throttle cable adjuster msx 140

    any of you msx 140 owners ever have any problems with your throttle cable adjuster coming loose ? it seems that the lock nut snugs up fine after adjustment. have checked everything i can think of related to the cable etc.

    Are you talking about the cable adjustment just forward of the throttle body?

    Clean any grease/oil off the threads, then try smearing a little blue Locktite 242 on the threads where the nut tightens.

    Be sure you get the slack adjusted properly before the Locktite hardens.

    I have adjusted mine so the throttle lever 'just starts' moving before the throttle shaft starts to turn. Turn the steering full left-right to verify that the throttle shaft doesn't move without squeezing the throttle lever.

    Also confirm that at full squeeze, the throttle shaft is fully rotated.

    Per page 35 in the 2003 MSX 140 Service Manual.

    The lock nut should be able to hold the adjuster in place, once the two are tightened together.
