    Anyone using the G2 throttle tube to combat the snatchiness?

    Yup, several of us using it with really good results.  Search for "throttle tamer" and you'll get the relevant threads.

    What's the trick to getting the actual cables out of the housing?

    The cables can only be loosened off by accessing the hole in the right side of the chassis which is behind the matt black right side knee/fairing panel. Once you're in there you should see the 2 throttle cables which activate the fuel injection. Both of them have a 10mm or poss 12mm nut which you slacken off (Take a piccie of how much thread they are showing before you loosen them so you can return them to their original position after you finish ) The slack will then allow you to remove the throttle tube cables and fit the G2. I have found the G2 to ease off the jerkiness but not completely eliminate it. If you search the forum you will find the above job posted with pix. I cant help you by adding links to them 'cos I'm computer dinosaur-sorry.
