Hand Throttle

Make It Yourself Using Bicycle Parts

March, 2003

The cable comes into the engine compartment a little close to the intake and exhaust manifolds, so I slipped a length of rubber hosing over it and used a zip tie to hold it away from the heat.

I ran the cable through the clip and wound it back around itself a couple of times. I tried to use a small zip tie to hold the cable to itself, but it wouldn't tighten completely. I ended up wrapping a couple of brass wire around the two cables and pinching it tight with pliers.
