Throttle Tube Play, a LOT?



How do I eliminate this play? It makes it almost impossible to roll onto the throttle through turns smoothly.

There are cable adjusters on the throttle cables just after the 90 bends.

WTB:
- Full set of race bodywork
- GP style windscreen (double bubble ok if cheap)
- Midpipe for Devil Rocket

Ive already adjusted those, this seems to be an issue with the actual throttle tube and play in the housing.

You could open the housing and take a look but I doubt there is anything wrong with the cam. There is additional adjustment on the throttle bodies.

Well the cables are already quite tight, I dont see them helping this issue any further. Is it not possible for the tube itself to be loose? If you watch the video its twisting and going back and forth

If there wasn't slack in the cables the tube wouldn't turn freely like that. You should open up the housing and you will understand; the housing can be opened by removing two screws on the bottom.

I tried to earlier but the top piece wouldn't come off. I'll take another look and try tightening it further.
