Default Throttle cable adjustment?

Maybe im just not looking at this right, but is there an adjustment to the throttle cable? Cant find one right off.

I was looking at a shift cable adjustment when I noticed that when I pull the throttle cable the foot pedal jumps up a little too much. Id like to adjust this and get it right before I mess around with the shift cable.

Thanks Guys.

Not that I am aware of.... Might look down at the pedal end, and see if there is anything there. Cables do stretch over time........

The only thing I've heard of is using a small piece of rubber and a zip tie behind the pedal to eat up a bit of slack. It'll change the resting height of your pedal, though. If you push the pedal all the way to the flyer floor and the throttle plates go vertical, all is well.

The best way to check is with a scanner and a watch the TPS output at key on, engine off. If it gets to full throttle percentage, no need to adjust.
