I need a picture

Today,I put my carbs back together,but I cant figure out how to connect the spring on the throttle part that is connected to the levers for the butterfly valves.Its the linkage that the throttle cables attach to.Does anyone know where I can get a picture of how this spring connects?
Please help! Steven

It may also help if you would give us your year model.

You may also get more info if you use the diagram to get a part number to describe your problem a bit more detailed.

You may also consider one of the manuals available like the Clymers or the Kawasaki shop manual. I know you want it back together now but this will prevent future grief when you get something apart and can't remember how to put it back together. Don't ask me how I know about this.

Well, thats a tough one, it's hard to explain but you will need to preload the spring before you install it. I gave mine 2 turns preload, but stock is 1 turn.
Just hook one side to a stationary location and take a turn and try to put the thing back together without 4 hands.

This is the return spring tension for the trottle cables.

I know it's not much but thats all I have, maybe someone else can chime in.

Actually I don't think the manual will help much if you have never done this before.

Don't ask me to do this again. Well, ask me only if it is below 150 degrees in my garage...

Not sure what holds the nut in place, other than maybe spring tension. You might want to back it out a tad and add some locktite.

Wanna talk about a biach...balancing your left pinky on the back brake cable while holding a flashlight pointed at the carbs, with a camera resting on the flashlight and your right hand holding the camera still while you push that hard to push picture taking button while your camera is flashing "keep steady" and your freshly run engine is steaming your face while your...
