yah, one to open and one to close, only it works great with just the cable that opens it, because the springs on the carb does the closing. When I use both, its all sticky and dont close by itself, the handgrip stays where I left it. I've had these carbs off lots of times and never questioned the two cables. Is it okay to delete this cable? or am I gonna take off like a ballistic missle into oblivion??
