  • Highly recommended: tie wire your throttle cable 300exc

    Has anyone tie wired there throttle cable to throttle housing as a stick got caught between handle bar and cable and pulled it out and sent the bike into full revs, still limping after two weeks. any pics of this mod would be good.

    I was amazed at the 350 though. It doesn't have the power of a 450 but has more than a 250, so it was just like riding a bike in between the two, wow.

        Always do mine.

        Like you said nothing quite like snagging a branch while riding through the Mallee sending you full noise into a tree.

        It's a real brown stain moment.

          Don't cable tie the rubber cover over the cable and mount! I see it alot and when it pulls out it is very hard to get back in.

          Make sure you wire-tie the cable outer to the throttle housing adjuster nut or thread.

                  Thats not good to hear Wayne, in all the years I've been riding I've never had that problem, must wire mine up as well.

                    If you ask motoz i think he had picks somewhere or it was on ktm talk

                    I Did mine as i had same problem but had the finger on the clutch thank god.

                    I has never happened again now that i tie wired the carb and throttle tube ends

                    You shit yourself when it hits full revs without you twisting your wrist she just screams and pulls hard .. Lucky no one has been hurt with this i think..

                    Should be done by the dealers for law suite protection IMO

                    i dont have any picks will have a look online for you

                          How do you do it at the carby end? I'll have to have a look when I get home. Is there a threaded section above the carb cap to wire onto?

                            This mod is worth it. I've had my bike lock on flat out in the mallee on three occasions. Lucky I always keep a finger in the clutch

                            I have thought about slipping some corrugated conduit over the cable as well for added protection.

                              One of the enduro racers I know reckons the cable pulled out of the top of the carby on a 300 on a hillside crash. The bloke unknowingly picked up the bike and clutch started it while rolling back down the hill resulting in a broken leg and a few other injuries. I did mine when I got home after hearing that.-smile
