throttle cable and oil injection

My throttle cable feels like it needs some adjustment,it's hooked to the oil pump also so if i adjust the throttle cable do i have to adjust the oil pump to be sync'd with the carb?i don't wanna play around with the throttle cable and richen or lean out my machine...any help?

Work with the carbs first, and then worry about the pump.

Warm up your engine, set the idle. Adjust your throttle cable so that it does not have too much play. (I don't have the proper procedure for that- maybe your manual indiactes something.)

If you are going to sync your carbs this is a good time to do that.

After all that, check your oil pump. There will be a moveable lever arm that the cable attaches to. Near the pivot point of the arm will be an index mark (line or dot). Also, on the body of the pump will be another index mark. You will need to lign these marks up at either idle (or full throttle - depending no your application). If they are not ligned up at either idle or full throttle, you will need to adjust the cable to make it lign up. Adjust the cale going to the oil pump - there should be some jam nuts.

Good luck. -Jace-

Is there too much slack in the cable?

There should be 1/8 inch of "free play" at the throttle lever before the carb slide starts to move.

maybe it's fine then sleds are new to me so i'm not sure,just going by what a friend says,he said it seems like it's not adjusted right and its too easy to push but he has old sled from the 70's so maybe he's used to those,i can squeeze it and get up over 100km/h no problem so it seems right to me.
