As far as I know I didn't disturb any of the settings inside the unit because it looked fearsomely complicated. I didn't have the cables off it, I just unbolted it from the bracket on the side of the console, took the bolts out that hold it together and split it in two, thought "eek" and put it back together again! Is there anywhere you can download a PDF manual for stripping and adjusting the throttle unit? I have a workshop manual for the engine but as far as I remember there is nowt in there about the thottle unit.
It does feel "different" now though ... when you hit WOT it feels like there is a definite solid "stop" you are hitting in the mechanism, whereas before that WOT felt a bit rubbery and you just sort of shoved it hard forwards and that got WOT but it was very vague feeling. I really don't know why it is so stiff though, its fine around the neutral position and feels fine backing off the throttle, but to increase throttle needs a real shove.
It isn't the end of the world anyway but I'd like to restore normal service if I can, apart from anything else I haven't got to the big 40 yet
Its tipping with rain today but I'll have another look when it isn't and see if there is a locking nut on the outside, can't remember as it was a few weeks ago I took it to bits.
