My First Throttle Cable Change Out

Performed my 1st change of hand grips and throttle cables. “What a SOB”. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to get the slack I needed to connect throttle cables to the grip. Finally found one of those [it's simple stupid] answers. Loosen the handlebars and rotate forward 90 degrees and you get all the slack you need. This worked on a Push/Pull system on a 2006 Shadow/Spirit VT1100C. Job done and the grips look great.
