    Bike reving too high!

    I just replaced the handlebars on my CB500T and now when I start the bike, it jumps straight to 6-7K rpm. I had to re-route the throttle cable but it doesn't seem too tight or anything. Any ideas??

    I would completely agree but "Herbie" is saying that there first is something wrong!

    if it has a splitter, chances are the cable has pulled from it and is hung up. look there. under the tank.

    Taking apart and putting back together the throttle assembly sucks! Is there a way I can do it from anywhere but the handlebars?

    I'll definitely be trying joe c's idea first!

    What kind of carb do you have on this bike - if it's a cv type of carb your problem could be in the carb and not the cable.

    Well, I'm a complete newbie mechanic so I have no idea what kind of carbs are on it. Everything was fine before the handlebar swap, though.

    Twin CVs, if I'm not mistaken.
