Please note that this is a simple but DIY process. Detailed directions are not yet available but you can use the guide below. If you do not comfortable doing this upgrade, please hold off until full video instructions are available.
These can be performed with the throttle attached to the machine but care must be taken not to damage the cable or plastic parts.
- Press out the 1/4″ pin (throttle lever axis). It is recommended to support the plastic from the back with a cylindrical shape slightly larger in ID than the pin (such as a socket or nut) and use a press but the pin could also be punched out using a punch and a rubber mallet.
- Carefully pull the lever out of the housing and let it hang on the inner throttle cable.
- Drill out the two holes on the lower throttle plastic piece (both sides that the 1/4″ pin went through) with a 17/64″ (or 6.75mm) drill bit. Lightly deburr the outside edges of the hole if needed.
- Drill out the throttle lever pin hole using a 9/32″ (or 7mm) drill bit.
- Put the lever back into position and align its hole with the holes on the throttle body.
- Hold the golden rivnut aligned with the hole on the same side as the strap (the cruise control will go on the other side).
- Use the supplied m5 socket screw (thread it through the throttle into the rivnut) to pull the rivnut through the first hole and the plastic lever. Please note, it is imperative that the holes are aligned as to not damage the lever. You can check for alignment by ground through just the first plastic piece first and undoing the m5 installation bolt to verify that the holes are still aligned.
- Screw in the Cruise Control lever until it interferes with the strap slot on the throttle.
- Pull the lever away from the throttle body (it’s spring loaded) to allow it to further rotate.
- Repeat steps 8/9 until the Cruise Control lever gets tight.
- Adjust the lever so it is can hold the lever while pointing away from the throttle but allows the lever to move completely freely when unscrewed and touching the plastic body. You can pull the lever away from the body and rotate the lever into a different position to fine tune the preferred position for the lever to have optimum clamping pressure.
