Throttle Cable(s) Replacement Question.
Good morning everyone,
A few visits to Iraq have kept both me and my bike (a 1996 SHadow A.C.E. 1100) off the forums for a bit. In a good place now and ready to get the bike back on the road. Got her running this weekend after changing out plugs, gas, and oil/filter. Very surprised with myself for making that happen. LMAO I did have one issue though. My throttle cable, the one on top, is frayed and I wanted to replace it. I would love to be able to replace it myself, but am unsure of how difficult the process can be. Again, my mechanical accumen is between nil and none. LOL Mind you, I was able to perform the above mentioned repairs without incident, so I know a little. I have a manual, so I imagine there is some help there. I would appreciate any input you guys have to offer as to whether this may be something I want to undertake myself. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
