    Guess again. Checked cable condition already and it moves smoothly through the housing and appears to be in great shape. I may still change it since I'll be messing with the spring anyways and they're cheap.

    Keep in mind just because I think the throttle is crappy doesn't mean someone else would agree. I might be wanting too much out of it for its price point and intended purpose.

    Re: New owner - fixing terrible throttle

    I still bet new cables would solve the problem. I'd do that first before messing with springs.
