Yeah, I understand that there are allot of people out there that did not or do not need to get under the tank. I probably did not need to, but after testing it both ways, it felt a little tighter after I did shave a little off the cable. Just some info for the ones that do. Thanks everyone.

Sorry ZaleZ it took so long your Thread should have been Cemented in the "How TO" sections for many reasons it got missed by some Mods....no worries better late than never.

got mine in just now, no test ride yet. didnt get under the tank, didnt cut any of the lock nuts. It seems to snap closed like normal from what I can remember, seems a little harder to crank the throttle, but Im guessing thats normal. Will have to see how it acts when running. Thanks for the write up!

should not really feel much harder. It should be basically like stock except shorter. Try adjusting your cables a little bit and see if itll be easier. Test it in multiple throttle positions. It should snap back whether you give it 10% 20% 50% 100% throttle very easily.

Would clipping the lock nuts on the throttle cables by the handle bars and adjusting them out further make it easier to roll?

yeah it does. I ditched the lock nuts on mine under the airbox as well as the forward ones to get more slack. try it and see what happens. Shouldnt be any binding though.
