    so to fix it properly,
    you'll need a new throttle cable, with a shorter inner
    or a new throttle
    or go buy an Oko 26mm, with UNI Filter, quick turn throttle

    or you could try the cheap fix, and redrill your throttle tube to take up the extra cable length
    or unsolder the fitting off the end of your existing cable, cut the cable 10mm or so shorter, then resolder the fitting on

    or buy either an Emergency Throttle Repair kit,and some grub screw to use inteasd of the screw supplied
    or an extra long adjuster screw

    yeah... saw that one.... i would rather the right angle on the end... if i come off i'll probably snap the cable off and it'll rev its head off....
    what do ya think of the first one?

    do you have any little vise grips ?
    or a dremel, you could cut a slot in it and use a flat head screwdriver

    you could try but the impact screwdriver will work all most for sure.. if not i drill a little hole in the center take the drill bit out smash it into the screw carefully put the driver back on and that usually gets them

    a Hammer drill is for drilling cement/rock etc

    most of the time with one bolt out,
    you can carefully tap the throttle off the end of the bars anyway, then try and get the screw out of the throttle while resting it on a bench etc

    good work,

    hey i just noticed, your Front Forks don't have air bleeders ?
    have you had any trouble with your seals leaking ?

    i would delete or replace that last picture too,
    the only way you could focus on it would be after a night on the beers !
