Install Puch slide style throttle cable

How do I install this cable? Im running it straight through the hole in the housing, and into the slider and tightening it down. Off the bike it’s OK, but on the handlebars the throttle doesn’t spring back. Am I installing it wrong on the throttle side?

youve probably got it too far on the handlebar and too tight. back it off, slide it back, retighten

That makes it return, albeit a bit slow for my liking. It also means about an inch of tube is hanging off the end of the bar. Is that alright?

Throttle return on stock puch is basically governed by the slide spring. To keep it smooth make sure the cable is lubricated in the cable housing, make sure there's no kinks or bends in the cable housing, and use graphite lubricant in the throttle housing
