    • I feel like the throttle never “snapped” closed since I bought the bike last year.  But it did throttle down when rolled forward.  Through my tinkering and reading it seems there are four throttle cables.  What’s the easiest way to get at them and lube them?  They might need replacing but I’d like to try cleaning first.  It seems clear the left fairing needs to come off but where is the cruise housing located?  I think that’s where cables one and two turn into three and four.

       

      also any tips on installing E clips to the carb linkage?  I bought a variety set from harbor freight but can’t get my fingers or tweezers in there without dropping or flying the clip.

      I’ll start with #3&5. If your cooling system is working correctly check the vents in the lower fairings, they control airflow into the cockpit area. I never had leg heat issues on my 1st gen. 
      I haven’t seen much luck with a single carb swap in the posts I’ve read, get the carbs right and keep em clean and that thing is a rocket. 
      I’m sure some of the 1st gen gurus will be around soon to give better info, I’ve moved to a 2nd gen as I like feet forward bikes. 
      Welcome to the site, you won’t find better info anywhere to keep her going, best $12 investment you’ll spend on the bike. 
      I suggest you ask over in the Watering Hole or 1st gen sections to get better response.

      Greetings I'm Matt live on the east coast work the entire lower 48 found a bike i couldnt pass on due to condition an mileage hopefully i can pick some of your brains for knowledge on thes giant Yamamonsters 

      just picked up a 84 venture royale only 9,000 miles the bike is a 8.5 out of 10 garage queen just a blemish here or there ....so i ride it home today and stop look down an there is fluid on the bottom of the left front fork its not  the fork  seals it looks like the anti dive system ? 

      being an 84 i am sure there is lots of things waiting to give me a fit ...I will apologize ahead of time for my tons of questions as i am sure there will be many . I also i am notorious for run on sentences sorry .  ..... 

      things I am curious about 

      1 swapping the forks out for an updated version and also replacing the rear shock possibly dropping the air ride system 

      2 what kinds of exhaust will fit the Venture 

      3 solutions for the heat on your legs ( holy moly i got cooked ) 

      4 adding lights fog , marker , swapping radio , losing the air ride 

      5 curios about the single carb swap maybe try a webber 40mm 

      and I am sure tons more ...pic is of my bike today when i bought it

    • I just use 3/4" P clamps from home depot and a couple 1/4"x20 bolts in the HD factory bracket. Making those hockey stick bracket was going to be a day project. Once I checked into it the P clamps were easy and cheap.
