Hey guys im new to the site this is my first post.

I have a 2004 sportsman 500 ho thats having problems with the throttle cable..
I found the adjustment on the cablr below the thumb buttom and adjusted since I was originally having an idle problem. But it was being weird and anytime I moved the cable in any direction the idle went up or down. Turnin the handle bars either way..same problem. Traced the cable moved it around to see if maybe I was just stretching it..nope. I can hold the cable still on the handlebars so it doesnt move. And turn the bars and it still does the same thing..have no idea whats going on hoping someone on here can help. Im at a loss so far.


:(

Need to adjust throttle cable with 1/8 inch of slack at thumb throttle then adjust idle speed at the carb, If its an efi machine adjust TPS, throttle position sensor, need special tools to do that.
