Does anybody know if there's a Service Manual for throttle cable routing or if there's a Tech Paper (recall) for insuring that the cable is routed properly at the throttle on the handlebars?
Reason I am asking; My 2000 E-Glide Ultra-Classic has broken 2 throttle cables since I got it.
The last time it broke, I was on my way to the European Bike Week in Villach Austria.....bad part was I was in the longest tunnel between Germany and Austria........that really sucks...
It looked like the cable was mis-routed from the factory in the beginning, theres a metal clip/bracket that's supposed to keep the switch housing wiring secure........I re-done that and it seems to be working OK...
I was just curious if any body else has this problem.
Oh yea........keep a pair of medium sized hemostats in your tool bags.. I figured that the rest of the cable can come out of the housing, clamp on the hemostats to it and it will function as a throttle crude ...yes, but it works.....once I was thru all the gears and at speed....just hit cruse control..
