So yeah, let me clarify what I mean. When I twist the throttle to accelerate, I have to push forward instead of pulling downwards. Oh and the grip is a little stiff.
Ares X, I agree about the windshield as far as the Blvd windshield, but I'm willing to give the Memphis Shades Speed Demon a try. They're still short enough that I'll be able to see over and tall enough to help keep all the cables in place.
So this time when I attempt switching the cables at the throttle body end, I'm not taking the fuel tank off. I'll get to it from the side, that is - removing the side cover and bracket.
