146 MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
A. Decelerator Cable
B. Accelerator Cable
D. Lockn uts
Turn the accelerator cable adjuster
until 2 3 mm (0.08 0.12 in.) of
throttle grip free play is obtained.
Tighten the locknut.
If the throttle cables cannot be ad-
justed with the adjusters at the upper
end of the throttle cable, further ad-
justment of the throttle cables should
be done by an authorized Kawasaki
With the engine idling, turn the han-
dlebars to each side. If handlebar
movement changes the idle speed,
the throttle cables may be improperly
adjusted or incorrectly routed, or they
may be damaged. Be sure to correct
any of these conditions before riding.
Operation with improperly ad-
justed, incorrectly routed, or
damaged cables could result in
an unsafe riding condition. Be
sure the con trol ca bles are ad-
justed and routed correctly, and
are free from damage.
