lol well sort of..... i can tell you that for a k7 naked CA model with 6k miles of stretch on the stock throttle cable, you dont need to cut anything off the R6 throttle tube when installing it.

also inside the housing, there is nothing that interferes with the throttle going to full open or closed position regardless of cutting.

i believe canyonchasers has it wrong also, because i cant see how cutting where they say to cut will do anything except release a tiny amount of open throttle cable tension. your cable would have to be really tight to keep it from returning to idle.

was easier to get cables back on though after the cut, but throttle plate movement was the same.

My '07S did not require any cutting of my R6 tube.

I did have to cut the r6 throttle tube when installing on my k6. I tried it without cutting it first and the idle was at about 5,000 rpm then I cut where they say to cut on canyon chasers and idle was normal. The part that you have to cut is the throttle stop. Without cutting it the throttle can not completely close....on a k6 atleast.

so it looks like some S model 2nd gens require cutting? are you guys fully loosening your cable adjusters before you install?

i dont really see mechanically how the cutting makes a diference in cable tension since the material they say to cut is slotted with the cable running through it, not over it.

i dunno.

I did not have to loosen anything. My throttle had a normal amount of slack (1/4" or so). When I put the R6 tube on, 98% of the slack was gone, but the throttle plates still closed 100% - I could hear them hitting their stops (confirmed visually).

yes the cable does run through that part but the part that they show in the picture is up against the throttle stop when closed. So if you install it and your bike idles high then you can cut off the piece they have shaded red and it will allow the throttle to completely close.

I hope what I said makes sense...

03s requires cutting.. Look at where it is supposed to be cut. that is the "open" stop and not the "close" stop. If the throttle cables bind, it i because you just put a tube with a larger diameter on (that is why it is 1/5 turn). You need to adjust the cable length at the adjusters (bulges 8" down from the grip) to stop it from binding.

This has already been confirmed in other threads as well.
