PostSubject: Throttle Cable Adjustment?   Throttle Cable Adjustment? EmptySun Apr 08, 2007 5:01 pm

the throttle cable for my rivi seems to be either not adjusted right or broken. the gas pedal has no kind of leverage anymore and just kinda sit on the floor.

this is what it looks like.

Throttle Cable Adjustment? 2vct7hv

ive looked on a friend of mines rivi and on his cable , the black clip is closer to the little metal object on the left than mine is.

could it be my cable is too long?
