I need to adjust the throttle cables on my 2004 VTX 1300C but have run out of room to adjust at the throttle grip and don't know how else to adjust them. If anyone can please help, I'd greatly appreciate it

Use the "Search Community" at the top of the page. I saw a couple of threads on the subject.

It's odd that you have run out of room to adjust the throttle cable at the handle...is it too loose or tight?

the other place to adjust it is at the carb. you have to take the intake or air filter cover and body off to gain acess to the cable at the carb.

you can only do this if the air intake box has been decapitated...or the top has been cut off. If it is stock, you will have to lift up the tank or might be easier to remove it.
