Hi Guys, having problem with sticking throttle, can be a bit hair raising and iffy going into corners a bit quick, the problem only occurs in hot weather, The twin cables are very close to exhaust and engine, Are they getting too hot and then sticking in the outer , The problem is that it is difficult to re-route them, Anybody else had this kind of problem , or have a solution Cheers chilli

Thanks Davo, Have actually got the same arrangement as you mention, the problem only occurs in very hot weather,so have put it down to cables getting very hot, Have now re-routed cables away from exhaust and it now seems ok, fingers crossed at the next hogh speed corner !!!! cheers Chilli,
