This is a basic throttle kit for the Predator 212cc. The governor will not be affected by this.
Tip! When threading the bolts in, move your wrench or ratchet in either direction a few times, this should make the threading easier - the paint can make it difficult to thread and feel like it's cross threading.
- Remove the air box assembly, and remove the tube from the gas tank.
- Remove with a 10mm socket the two nuts holding the air box assembly on.
Slowly pull it away - there may be another hose in the back.
- Now ready to prep the stock linkage for the upgraded kit.
***With a 10mm socket or wrench slightly loosen (about 1/4 turn on) the yellow center nut holding the throttle control. This should to be able to move freely now. Remove the conduit retainer (red circle) and set aside - it's no longer needed.
***Make sure the cable stop (green circle) is loose enough for the throttle rod to go through - do not remove the screw.
- Remove the top two bolts (8mm socket) on the recoil housing, discard the washers. Start installing the throttle kit by positioning the rod into the cable/rod clamp. Now reinstall the two recoil housing bolts (without the washers).
- Install the cable through the fitting and into the aluminum cable clamp. You'll need a very small allen key for this. Feed the cable through the top and out the side - you can bend the end of the cable slightly to persuade it to come out the side you'd like.
- This is where you will also set your tension for throttle adjustment, and the throttle rod will be fastened when you adjust your cable tension.
- Once everything is tightened up, the throttle linkage moves freely and comes back to idle without assistance.
- This is a very smooth throttle - if you feel binding, or anything else check the installation again.
- Now you can re-install the stock air box.
