Frayred throttle cables.

Inspected my throttle cables on my 00WR this weekend and both were frayed to the point of no return. Anyone out there no of a fix for this design flaw?


Yes, there is a fix. Yoshimura has come out with a new cable wheel that is supposed to fix this. For $50, it ought too!



97 KDX220, 86 TTR225, 99 WR400f, WR timing, throttle stop trimmed, air box lid removed, White Bros head pipe, silencer and air filter. De-octopussed. Works frame guards and Thumper Rad Guards, Scotts steering damper. Odometer and headlight removed. Moose hand and mud guards. YZ stock tank, IMS seat and number plate. Renthal Jimmy Button "highs" and Renthal Soft half waffle grips. AMA, SETRA, Happy Ramblers MXC.

If you carefully adjust both cables you can get them so there isnt such an extreme angle between the end of the cable housing and the carb. They will last a lot longer.


had the same prob on my 99 yz400

spent 35 on cables and when i went to replace them i discovered that the cable "holder" next to the engine is at a horrible angle so this caused only one cable to fray.

I put the new cables on and zip tied them together close to the bracket and seemed to straighten thme out and hopefully cure the prob.
