    I searched for a how to, and perhaps my searching skills aren't as good as my 'gotta-get-er-going' skills.

    Thing is, I am remote. Only thing I could find to immediately get things running was a brake cable/sleeve. I used up some of my jewelry soldering supplies and it works while I wait weeks for the throttle cable on order.

    What I do to keep the throttle cable from failing is putting a throttle stop on my throttle.
    You can pull it down as hard as you can and there's still a little slack on the cable so
    there's never too much pressure on it.
