  1. Then, ignition switch OFF.

INSPECTION
  1. Confirm there are no sharp bends in cables.

  1. Depress the accelerator pedal and check to see the throttle lever moves smoothly from fully closed to fully open.

  1. Check inner cables for correct slack.

  1. If there is too much slack or no slack, adjust play by the following procedures.

HINT
  1. If the cable is very loose, the loss of speed going uphill will be large.

  1. If the cable is too tight, the idle RPM will become high.

ADJUSTMENT
  1. Loosen the adjusting nuts and lock nuts of the accelerator cable and the cruise control cable, so that the throttle lever can move freely.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (without starting the engine).

  1. Tighten the adjusting nut of the cruise control cable in the direction to lessen its play. At the position where the cruise control lever touches the stopper, unscrew the adjusting nut the specified number of turns.
