If the lower adjustment has never been changed (still set at factory adjustment), and you are running out of upper adjustment, that is a strong indication that you have other problems.

You mean what other problems ???
- cables stretching
- cables wearing into their outer housings
- worn or incorrect throttle grip
- cables incorrectly routed

How many miles on your Wing ???

Are you nearly out of adjustment near the throttle ???
Do you have a non-OEM steering head, or risers ???
Does your throttle snap back at full left, full right, and in the center position of the bars ???

Next time you change the air filter, you can remove the air box and reveal the top of the throttle body. On the left side of the throttle body you will find the cable connections. There are (IIRC) three cables there. Two are for the throttle, one for the cruise...

You will need a manual if you intend to DIY...

Every throttle cable on every motorcycle I own seems to have the same glitch, and while I've never really studied what is wrong with any of them, I find that if I regularly go WOT and back again whilst traversing on agreeable roadways seems to help whatever it is that is wrong with them...or at least it takes my mind off the problem temporarily. Just knowing that the throttle plates will open all the way seems to make me feel better somehow. CAUTION: If you try this method of checking your throttle cables, tire wear may suffer. I know it does on my bikes, as I can't seem to get more than 2000 miles out of any rear MC tire. I do have somewhat better luck with the car tires on the Honda and can get nearly 15,000 on them.
