throttle help

Post by assinine1 » Sat Jul 11, 2020 9:31 am

Was taking the carbs off for cleaning and noticed no tension on the throttle cables. Turns out the throttle cable connection point in the twist grip broke; aluminum degraded. Anyone know where I can find another throttle assembly? And does the assembly need to be Ural or can I use a different throttle assembly from any other bike that uses two cables? Bike is a 1998 Deco Classic.

Did ya break this bit? They come in different sizes depending on the cable ends. If the above part it still intact and just where it mounts to the twisty is snapped, you can get a new throttle thinger https://russiangarage.com/product_info. ... cts_id=156

Terry Crawford was always able to get me stuff for my 650 http://www.crawfordsales.info/

Terry or Gene are going to be more expensive than Russian Garage but the quality of their parts is also much better. Russian Garage is like Grade B stuff, lower quality Russian Domestic but it works in a pinch. Terry and Gene will have US export quality which really is worth much more $$$ for both fit and quality.

You have 25mm bars and the Russian setup is kinda it's own thing. You can probably retrofit with a Harley dual cable pull for 1" bars, but it would also replace the kill switch and other bits since you would need to replace the whole assembly.

Terry will need to know your carbs, as I think the cable ends are different. Russian Garage is going to be kinda slow shipping right now due to COVID.

If that's all it is it should be pretty easy to make one using common hand tools and the old pin and piece of chain.

Drill the holes and cut the slot while it is still attached to a larger piece of metal before roughing out the piece and then finishing to size.

Best,

That is exactly what broke. Terry is sending me a new assembly including this piece. Thank y'all very much for the replies.

Glad to know you'll get a replacement. Judging by the photo, it really looks messed up.

If you are talking about the photo I posted, that's what a new replacement part looks like. Cosmoline adds character.

Terry was able to help and send the chain and block. Trouble now is actually attaching the cables to the small block without breaking the block. I must not have delicate Russian fingers...
