I Ride: FE570 - 12
Adjusting play in throttle cable FE570

loving my Berg, don't get out as much as I should though.. went to the last Watagans Trail Bike rally recently and for the first time noticed the play in the throttle.

Its not much but the more I thought about it whilst riding the more it bothered me

I checked the manual and it says 3 - 5mm that's about how it is now.

Am I being paranoid? I would like little or no play, or is that not practical??

I've just recently loosened my throttle to the 3mm specified, likely it will reduce un-intended throttle roll on when the going gets rough and fast ?
At least that's my experience.

Best advice I can give is to set your bike up how it suits you.

(Be glad you're not on a Sherco. The French two wheeled mistress of 2016 has just broken a friends knee cap (patella). he was wearing knee braces too

Brand new bike, second ride, went to wide open throttle (uncontrolled) and spat him off. Wanna buy a sherco with only two rides under her skirt ?


Watagans are a nice part of the world - was it wet up that way ?

I've got an FE450 -12 and I don't like play in the throttle cable. Hence when I got it I set the play to basically zero. It has worked fine and I've not had any issues in spite of having ridden it for 3 years and bent two bars so much that they had to be scraped.
