That photo was to demonstrate that if I tried - with not too much effort - I could pull the throttle cable out of the channel. I still think it’s a bit wonky since taking off the carb for the first time. Been having difficulty finding a ton of info about the proper way to set that throttle cable up. It’s on my list. (Photo shows normal)
But I agree the bit with the two bolts on the cable near the grip seems to do nothing. The part connecting to the carb seems proper.
Assuming I should just pull off the grip and take a look inside? Any easier way to do that?
