TM 40 heavy throttle pull

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or has the TM40 a really heavy throttle pull? I have only recently done the conversion on my XR650R and love it, but the heavy throttle is annoying especally on really big rides where my hand gets sore holding a steady throttle on longer transport sections.

Maybe I could look at more lube on the throttle tube and cables and rerouting the cables a bit... I run a Acerbis big tank. Please let me know if that is just the nature of the beast, but I didn't expect it...

Hey Morty,are your cbles bound up,or sometims it can be the throttle tube.

Does the throttle snap closed?

Im not sure where i saw it but i thought there was 3 settings to adjust the throttle pull snap resistance.

Return spring on the carb body may be the 3 different settings, more or less spring tension changes throttle resistance.
