Removing slack from throttle...

On the Gix, I have about a 1/4 of slack just after full closed throttle and it gets on my nerves and messes with my shifting, down shifting, braking while blipping the throttle, etc. Is there a way to eliminate the slack? It's been there since the bike was new.

Also, is there a way to adjust the clip ons a little father forward? I tried loosening and moving one once but there is a little knobby that sticks into a hole in the top triple clamp to lock it in place.

Thanks in advance!

yes, tighten the cable...

There is an upper adjuster and a lower. Here is what the upper usually looks like... Get a service manual, it will tell you how to do it.

Cool. Now to figure out how to adjust the clip ons without filing off the little knobby on them. They kill my wrists at the angle they're at.
