Hey Guys,

I'm finally able to make out to the garage to work on the 76 gl1000 and I've noticed the throttle cables are not moving freely.... I can't seem to find a diagram of the proper route for them... does one exist? Anyone have any sage advice?

This is a bit tricky to explain without pictures but I will try. From the grip to behind the headlight going into that area above the right hand headlight ear. Then across in front of the steering neck. There it will enter the shelter area above the cross member. It will runparallel to the frame back and across the cross tube above the back edge of the carbs. The cables go down between the last cross member and the front of the fuel tank. There is a basic diagram in the Honda Shop Manual.

In the Honda service manual there is a couple of pictures that show the routing. It's in the 'Engine Removal & Installation' section. Mine shows it on page 4-14 which is the last page of the section.

Thanks guys.. I guess I just missed it in the manual. I'm hoping bad routing is causing a REALLY stiff throttle.

I route mine outside the frame, hang just below the false tank, on the 2/4 side, bigger curves less binding and it makes getting carbs out much easier..

Try taking the cover off the handlebar assembly and putting a little oil- WD40 etc. in there. It will work it's way down the cables. Worked for me.

I've got a cable luber that I'll use now that I have the cables detached at the handle bar... I'm also going to clean up the throttle sleeve and the handlebar tube.

Should there be or is there a lubricant I can/should use between the sleeve and the handlebar itself?
