2004 Yamaha FZ1 Throttle Cable Assistance - April 2, 2008, 09:21 AM

Currently working on replacing my throttle cables. I have the new lines routed, have the front throttle cable mounted, just need to get the second cable mounted, on the back of the rocker, without removing the carbs and gack... but its looking like i have to. Input? Suggestions.... I live downtown DC so I would be willing to drop a case of beer and sime cash to someone that would want to work on it on my patio with me!! You can email me @ markg@buzzlife.com Thanks to anyone who can help.

Yank the carbs! Trust me it will be easier and less painful. Taking the carbs of is only 4 screws with a long screw driver. I could help but when you looking to do this? BTW I have done this on 2 FZ1's and its really not that bad to pull them.

pulling the rack makes it tons easier. when reinstalling the rack, use your fingers and rub some WD40 on the insides of the boots to aid in reseating them on the motor side.
