Properly sized throttle cables are essential for safe and correct adjustments to the throttle and carburetor. This throttle cable is suitable for the early unit-construction Triumph twin-cylinder models with a single Amal Monobloc carburetor and low-rise handlebars. This listing is for (1) cable.
This quality cable from Doherty features an inline adjuster, correct top hat ferrule at the carburetor end, and a friction-reducing nylon lining for easy operation and longevity. Overall length is approximately 43-3/8″, with an inner wire free length of 2-3/4″.
The cable is pulled by the motion of the twist grip, allowing it to raise and lower the throttle slide in the carburetor. Fine adjustments to cable lash are made by the inline barrel adjuster on the cable.
The carburetor top cap must be removed to thread the cable through the top cap. The return spring is installed over the cable, then the cable is captured in the throttle slide. The needle and clip are fitted to the slide, with the return spring compressed so it is out of the way. The twist grip body must be separated to access the rotor, which pulls the end of the cable.
