Evening all,

after the final of the last round I found I had a stuck throttle cable, so bought a new one, anyone else find they seem to always be a little too big in terms of the outer.

question is do people normally cut the outer to suit?

Yes mate, cut it with a 4" grinder at the carb end to get a nice tidy cut. Don't use snips or side cutters as it will be a janky mess. I think I cut off 1/4 off mine if I remember, runs down the side of the seat and upto the carb with a nice sweeping bend on it.
