    For what? If it's free play then on a single cable system adjust the tensioning barrel nuts at the grip module until you have a minimum free play that doesn't either cause an idle speed change when you turn your bars to full lock on either side or in the case of a double pull-pull system until there's no slop but very little cable drag. You want just a tiny bit of tension in the cable system. It's easy to get carried away on this one. The system feels tighter with more tension but the cable drag adds a lot of wear on the housings and makes the throttle action less smooth thanks to sticktion in the system.

    Some bikes may have the tension adjusters under the tank on the carb bank.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
