I know this may sound like a stupid question, but I'll ask anyway - What does this cable do? The reason I ask, is because this is what's on the end of it. It's just a mangled mess of bare wire: Does this have anything to do with the way it shifts? I'm just trying to figure out why my 1-2 shift is so firm and tight while the 2-3 shift is relatively sloppy at times. And while I'm at it I might as well ask - If I adjust my TV cable at all from the position it was in when I bouight it, I cannot open the butterflies more than about 3/4 throttle. I didn't think to check that before I adjusted it, but I only moved it about 1/8" towards the carb, so it may not have open all the way before I adjusted it either. Any thoughts on all of this?
