How much free play in the throttle do you guys have? I have almost an eighth of a turn. I was just wondering if that is normal because I find it annoying.

Adjust it out with the cable housing legnth adjusters on each end of the cable. In your case make the housing longer. Fog prefers 0 free play , but thats hard to acheive without binding, a 1/16" amount will seem invisable.

That's what you already have. you mean 1/8 turn . Yes plenty of them at the track, for the street not a good Idea.

Why not a good idea for the street? Because of throttle sensitivity? Are they basically on gas...off gas? Just asking...and learning ;)
1 you don't need it
2 yes why make it harder to ride smooth
3 you don't need it.

I agree with Fog though. you wouldn't want that on the street.

this reminds me though, i need to adjust the slack on my throttle too.
