    I was lubing the throttle cables on my 02 Road King. I'm having a problem getting the idle cable to adjust properly. It seem to loose and if I try to adjust the cable further the throttle seems to bind. Looking for possible solutions.

    The play in the cable keeps it from binding, too tight and they pull against each other and it binds. Always try turning the bars after an adjustment to be sure they do not pull the throttle open some.

    Thanks for the info. I continued to play with them and as you indicated when I had a little slop in the cables they seem to work fine.

    Thanks again
