Where do you guys run the throttle cable on a CL 350. Mine runs from the throttle to directly under the tank. It also goes to full rev when I turn the handlebars to the left, and dies when I go full right. I can't figure out any other way to run it that might stop this. How are yours run?

How noisy is the 350 at speed? I seem to be getting a rattling noise, and at first I suspected the timing chain, but everything seems adjusted properly, and I just had the head apart and everything seemed nice and tight. Any other things that can make a rattling sound from the front? Something like when you have your kick start out a little while driving. It doesn't seem to be there at low speed, but gets loud when I am around 5k rpm. Thoughts?

The cable should go from the underside of the throttle/switching unit in front of the bars, down inside the chrome "C" on the riser caps ( between the bars and instruments) beside the right side of the steering neck, and the splitter should be just in front of the top engine mount.............

The noise you are hearing sure sounds like a cam chain issue. You say you removed the head but did you remove the cam chain tensioner and check the guide and rollers?

I took it for a spin tonight and tried to track down the sound, it really seemed like it was coming from the right side, and my attention kept drawing to the oil pump/filter cap. Could the sound be coming from there?

I checked the cam chain and tension, it seemed ok when I reassembled it, but it could still be it.

I tried running my cable the way you said, but it didn't seem to fit. I will try it again and see if it is just something I did wrong the first time.

Thanks.
