I found the throttle a bit stiff on two Vulcan 750s I bought new. On the second one, I removed the "push" cable, and thoroughly lubricated the cable that actually opens the throttle. Problem solved. No matter how well lubricated they are, two cables will always cause more friction than one. The way I see it, the cable is to open the throttle, the spring is there to close the throttle. If the cable broke, the spring would automatically close the throttle.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
