What's the best way to install a new throttle cable?

I got some awesome tips on diagnosing my moped's stuck throttle cable problem. The solution seems to be to Stuck Throttle Cable.

Therein lies yet another problem. The throttle cable routes through the frame of the moped. What's the best way to route the new throttle cable through the frame without taking the frame apart (if taking it apart is even possible)? Once I get the cable through the frame, how do I connect it to the actual throttle on the moped?

For reference to the original problem, take a look at my throttle cable teardown.

Thanks a lot!

depending on the cable (if it has 'solid' parts, and at which end) you can tape the new cable to the old one, or tie it together with wire, and use it like a guide wire to pull the new one threough.

which direction depends on the situation.

With a bit of skill, most of the time it is possible (and not too difficult) to just poke the new cable through the frame (it is stiff enough to be guided. Believe me, these cables have to be replaceable, and easier than iPod repairs!! :) good luck

Awesome, thanks. I think I'll try to braze the old cable to the new one, and then pull on the old and push on the new!

^ what he said.

hey - connecting it to the throttle - if you take the old one out you see how it is fitted. You are talking the twisty thingy?
