There is an adjustment on the "pull" part of the throttle cable right where it comes out of the throttle tube at your right grip. Loosen the locking nut and turn the adjuster piece (it's about an inch long and looks like a hex nut). If you are standing at the right side of the bike and looking to the left, you would turn it....Clockwise. When you are done adjusting this, you should feel almost NO slack in the throttle cable. IMPORTANT.....Make sure that you have the engine running and then turn the steering all the way left and then turn it all the way right. When you do this, you should NOT notice any change in engine RPM. If you do notice a change, back off of the adjustment
1/2 turn and try again. I idea is to take out almost all of the slack in the cable but NOT to the point that turning the bars left and right causes any change in engine RPM. Once that is accomplished, tighten down the original lock nut that you loosened for adjustment purposes. Make sure that when tightening the lock nut back down that you hold the adjuster piece with a wrench so that it doesn't turn when you lock it down. Hope this helps.
