Ok there's 3 adjusters essentially. Throttle cable A has one by the handlebar. Then cables A and B have adjusters by the engine where you guys are talking about. You can either take off the front overhead cover or the air cleaner to get to them.

So the adjuster on A by the handlebar is for minor adjustments. The adjusters on A and B by the engine are for major adjustments.

I just needed enough slack to get the cables off of the throttle tube and the adjuster by the handlebar was just barely enough to do that.

Anyone else have any good tips on removing and reinstalling the cables to the throttle tube? It's a pain in the ass!

I changed mine out, You have to take the ones off the throttle body on the motor anyway. Loosen them up first, I used a sharpe to mark the screw location on the old ones to compare to the new cables.
Once you get them loosen off the throttle body of the motor, you will easily get them off the throttle tube..:D

+1, lots easier if you take them off the throttle body, I have seen many broken by just loosening the one at the grip. The best thing to do is change to S/S at the same time, since they have to come off anyway. :cool:

Had to give up for the night on a *simple* project to install my new grips. Can't get enough cable slack to get the new throttle sleeve on. So close but I'm afraid of breaking a cable end or the sleeve - broke the old sleeve getting the cable off. Tomorrow I'll try Tony's advice. If someone has done this recently and has tips, I'm all ears.

Where on the throttle cables are the adjusters so I can loosen the cables to get them off the throttle tube?
Loosen the cables down below at the throttle body. It can be done with out doing it this way but its not worth the time and effort. It only takes to a couple min. to losen the cables below rather than the wrestling match your headed for without doing it.

That was the ticket. Note to self: in the future buy grips not already glued to a throttle sleeve.

I guess every bike is different... I just completely loosened the cable at the handlebar connection, twist the throttle to loosen the return, and then release the throttle and the other end comes off.

What really took time but was worth it was machining down the throttle housing for the HD billet grips that I got on eBay for $30.
