Getting to the connections at the throttle bodies it a bit involved.

I just replaced mine about a week ago. The shop charge me 1.5 hrs of labor= $129

just getting the cables off and on the throttle tube was APITA. i was just replacing the throtle grip/tube due to a broken handle bar. i was soo frustrated i was cursing in so many languages!! I was working on the bike outside and it was cold which added to the frustration on hooking up the cables back on the grooves on the tube.

After the experience replacing the broken handle bar where i had to replace my throttle tube and deal w/ the throttle cables. I gladly paid the $I29. I actually felt bad for the guy that did it cuz he had to do them.

I read the 2 DIY writes ups/ both w/ great pictures, tips, instructions. And i also have the service manual. It doesnt seem that hard, ITS JUST PATIENCE W/ THE CABLES because there seems to be no slack for the cables to be hooked where they are suposed to be...For me the deciding factor to taking it to the shop was the weather and shop rate.

If i had a garage i could have taken my time and learn more about the bike while doing them and feel good after finishing the job! But no regrets hooking up the cables really is APITA!!

It's not that hard.

Remove tank cover and airbox, all exposed.
Remove old, replace with new, done.

Set aside 4 hours. If you know what you're doing it'd take about 1.5. But dont rush it.

Make sure to adjust it at the throttle body cam pretty tight, and final adjustment at the bar.

Download an 04-05 manual if not feeling confident.

No the tank will tilt back. I use a piece of wood to let it rest on. Replacing the cables isn't really hard but can get time consuming. The difficult part is the bottom cable. It is like you are threading a sewing needle with welding gloves on. If you have anything such as surgical hemostats those will help or long needle nose pliers. Anything that is long and narrow that can hold the cable will work. Do a search, not just here, so you get an idea. Youtube has some good videos. Once you get them replaced turn your handle bars to see if it is binding anywhere.
