If that's all you got, than do this:

1.) remove old throttle grip (aircompressor)

2.) unadjust throttle slack adjuster. (top of cable. Only 1 I believe)

3.) The Honda throttle has 2 different size threaded barrels for the cables, where they screw into the housing. They're not interchangable. Make sure they fit new housing. Remove old housing. (screws)

4.) remove cables from stock housing.

5.) install new cables in new housing. Make sure the cable stop/ends are narrow enough to pass through the new housing when twisted, and installed in new throttle tube. If not, you'll need to grind them down, like you do with the HRC kit, (comes with one cable) to make them fit. I got a bad feeling that they're not gonna fit. See item discription below.....

6.) depending on how much slack is in your cables, you *may* have to lift the fuel tank, remove the airbox and readjust your cable tension at the throttlebodies to properly install the kit.......

7.) install old grip.

I'm under the impression they're cables are required, due to this:

About this product



CNC machined in aluminium, the new quick action throttle kit is an indispensable accessory for all racers, track-day and road riders that want the trickiest performance accessories for their motorcycle.

Thanks to the facility to interchange the rotors inside the throttle mechanism that modify the ratio of the cable action, it is possible to fine tune the throttle response to every riders requirements. Applications for most late model Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki Triumph and Yamaha via cable selection (Cables available separately for specific bikes). The quick action throttle kit can sit alongside most standard Run/Stop-start control switches making it suitable for both circuit or road use.

Please Call Not Supplied With Throttle Body Cables.

For the record....I'm not fond of the idea of grinding down cable ends.

Then you'll need to lift, (I prefer removing....more room) the fuel tank, removing the airbox and adding the new cables.............
