I have a friend who just received an older Yamaha maxim. The bike is in wicked nice shape for it's year and all electronic work with no problem cranking over. So the problem he is having is that the throttle cable seems to be stuck. And if you look underneath the tank at the carbs it looks like the actual part attaching the cable to the carbs is not moving. Any help would be greatly appreciated I know nothing about carb bikes and I just want to help out a fellow rider.
Ps. Do you guys think I should just convince him to buy a newer bike and scrap/sell this one and use the money he has to fix it on a newer bike?
