LOOSE THE LAG IN YOUR THROTTLE RESPONSE...SIMPLE...

Sup fellaz

Not sure if this has been done already but Lately I noticed my throttle being very laggy..I read up about tightening the cable but it seemed kinda too much effort...I snooped around in the pedal bay area inside my celi and found this lil trick... thumbsup

Ok Just got back from the test drive and It does help fou shou... thumbsup before I could gently tap my acc. pedal without affecting the rps, now its to the touch..Just the way I like it...

At first the initial piece I used was too thick my RPM's were like WHOA eek so I sanded it down to puurrrrfection and now she purrrrrrrs like a kitten, a very aggressive kitty that is lol rofl BTW I used and eraser and cut it in half initially... rofl rofl rofl Easy to remove/replace if I trade/sell or send in to dealership... thumbsupAnother reason for eraser is that is need to be something soft, cushiony so that when you release the gas, you dont have this knocking sound...

Tightening the throttle cable is a twenty second ordeal. It's only a small(10-12mm) bolt. I did mine the day i took over ownership of my GTS. It's VERY simple

Actually, that looks unnecessary. Just tighten the throttle cable.
