That hasn't been my experience.... this is with five airheads and 20-ish years. BUT, I could be doing something wrong

Yeah, I was kind of wondering if he had a line on magic throttle cables.

Yeah, and you can buy a set from me for only $149.95 + SH.

My uncle came up with the design and passed it on to me. They look and install exactly like the BMW parts right down to the markings on the cables but mine are "set and forget forever" and if they do go out, just rebalance the carbs and they're set forever again!

Come and get em!
