I've almost completed installing the Cycle Cat riser bars on my 06 749S but have one issue. The throttle cable routing (stock) causes the cable to become too tight when the bars are turned to the right which than revs the engine without turning the throttle!
I rerouted the cable behind the steering tube to loosen the slack on the cable however this creates a condition which prevents the throttle from operating smoothly.
Has anyone rerouted the throttle cable on their 749/999 for a similar reason and if so how and where did you run the cable?

Thanks,
Rob

it won't be the throttle cable ,it's the fast idle cable that speeds up when turning the bars .as far as i've seen they all do it

Dammit, I've been fussing with my throttle cable tension for two months trying to get it to stop doing that. I didn't even think of the fast idle cable. What's strange is that it didn't used to rev up when turned to the right and I'm not sure why it's now doing it. I'll have to look into the fast idle cable as I'm pretty certain it's NOT cause by the throttle cables.

That is the culprit. I found by fiddling w/ the idle cable, i could seat it in such a way that it won't pull when the bars are all the way over.

it's now my start up procedure,fire up turn bars warm up .it only raises my rpm a few 100,and when riding you won't ever go full lock so it's not an issue to me .
