Why do motorcycles have 2 throttle cables?
So why do some motorcycles have two throttle cables? The previous throttle grip arrangement of operating the spring loaded slide mechanism by a single pull cable was found to be inadequate. That’s why, dual or double cable system throttle grip system was invented to favor twin-cylinder motorcycles in particular.
Can a clutch cable be repaired?
Changing clutch cables is a routine repair for all mechanics and can be done both kerbside as well as in the workshop, providing it is safe to do so.
What happens when the clutch cable snaps?
If for any reason the clutch cable snaps or breaks, the clutch pedal will become disconnected from the clutch linkage, and as a result will have little to no resistance when the pedal is depressed. This will obviously result in a vehicle that cannot shift into gear and will be undrivable.
How to fix a throttle cable?
Remove the Throttle Cable. Removing the throttle cable requires good concentration to prevent damage to the throttle body when pulling the cable out.
How do you replace a throttle cable?
In order to safely and efficiently replace your throttle cable you need a couple of basic tools: Step 1: Locate the throttle cable. One end of the throttle cable is located in the engine compartment, attached to the throttle body. The other end is on the driver’s side floor, attached to the accelerator pedal.
What is a throttle body cable?
The throttle body is located between the air cleaner and the intake manifold of the engine. Most throttle bodies are made of aluminum. The throttle body is connected to the gas pedal of your vehicle with a linkage or flexible cable, which moves the throttle shaft when the gas pedal is depressed.
What is throttle linkage?
The throttle is usually a butterfly valve assembly on the intake manifold, and is connected to the accelerator, or gas pedal, via the throttle linkage. This linkage enables you to control the engine’s throttle by how far you move the gas pedal — the further down you press the gas pedal, the more the throttle opens.
