    Ok, this thing is driving me nuts. Been tinkering with it for about an hour and I have no idea how this is suppose to go on.

    The original cable snapped on me so my buddy rigged it so to work with the other cable to get home. I didn't pay attention because I had to get ice for a burn on my hand when I touched the exhaust..

    Anywho, my motion pro cables finally came in and now I have no idea how they install. Pulled tank and seat to make install easier prior but that seems to be the easy part.

    Is there an online manual or some trick?

    What part is giving you grief. The routing, the throttle side or the carb side.

    Jsut think of it as one cable, the one that opens the throttle, and works adginst the spring in the carb. Hook that one up and then worry about the return cable.

    I guess I was thinking too much into it. After I wrote this I figured it out.

    Thanks for the help.
