Remove the Gas Tank

I had a similar problem on my 2015 after I did my valve shim check. I found a rubber sleeve over the main throttle cable, held in place by a wire clip. it had moved forward and was pulling on the throttle cam, as the cable sits in the cam bracket. I also found the main wiring harness was pushing / pinching the throttle cable against the air box, I installed a 120 wire tie and relocated the throttle cable just by the main adjuster where the clip was holding that sleeve, now all is good. FYI you can't see the problem with the tank on.
