Question 1100WT Carb Cables

I've just had to renew my throttle cables. Is there any quick fire tips for installing new cables on to the carbs - like how much thread do you need showing on the adjustment etc.?


I've checked the Suzuki manual and it only references having play at the throttle end - which is a bit of pain if you need to contort your wrist to get at the carb end.

Re: 1100WT Carb Cables

Carbs are fairly easy to remove on this model (at least mine have been on the 750w) and once out of the boots, you can tilt them to facilitate cable installation.

Re: 1100WT Carb Cables

Yes, I have found it's easiest to remove the carbs to install and adjust the cables. It can be done with them in the bike but you still need the tank off. The easiest way is to set the grip end adjusters to mid range, install the cables on the throttle tube then route them to the carbs and install them with no slack. Then follow the service manual procedure to set throttle cable play.
