       GT 250 snapped my throttle cable 32.7 miles from home. Lots of tight twisties, hills to get home. That was a little “too fun”.  I hope Marcel has a proper cable for me!

        Did you apply throttle with a pair of pliers all the way home? Nice work. That’s not much fun.

        My throttle cable rotates under the handlebar switch (at the curved metal piece, infornt of your pliers). It’s probably normal but mine gets stuck with the bend pointing to the front of bike. When i turn right at near full-lock, it pulls the cable tight around the right fork, the throttle opens up & starts revving it’s head off, when i’m trying to do slow, tight turns. That’s no fun either. 🙂

      Yes, I had to use the pliers all the way to apply throttle. Thanks.  I think in your case, maybe you need to look at rerouting your cable. That is not great with your climbing revs!
