Post Throttle Cable
As I have just returned home on the back of the recovery truck with my head held in shame due to a broken throttle cable. Can someone please confirm that the Spyder cable is the same as the Libra version as I have to get a new one made up presumably by Speedy cables. Looks a bit of a pig as the access to the pedals is limited particularly for the larger framed gentleman!!!. Anyone got an easy fix or have I just got to be a contortionist?

Access at the pedal end is much better with the seat out - well worth the four bolts in my opinion. I also took the steering wheel off. I hope its easier to do the cable than reaching the steering rack u-bolts! good luck...

Thanks for that. I almost got stuck in there at the roadside so will take your advice and get the armchair out.

I sent my 12year old skinny daughter down to put the cable on, much easier for me :lol:
