the adjustement i used was on the cable as it goes underneath the bodywork on the RH side and it crosses over the top of the Rad.

I didn't do either as its a plastic knurled fitting with a plastic lock nut you loosen, adjust slack as you wish , then retighten.

The one under the airbox is the return cable. Adjust both for best results. (my shade tree mechanic opinion)

Just take the tank off. It's not really that hard at all. Then you can adjust the pull
and the push cables. That's really the only way to do it right. I fucked around adjusting the one you can see and could never completly get rid of the slop.

I'm too friggin lazy to take the tank off, just adjusting the one on top has worked for me so far.But doing both is the right way.
