Ryobi BC30 Throttle cable is stretched

Do I have to take apart the trigger assembly to tighten the throttle cable or is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks.

Ones I have seen there is a set screw on the carb. Loosen that and you can then slip the cable through. I have not seen a cable stretch, it may have loosened up already.

Cables do stretch and plastic parts wear. You may well have an adjustment for the cable on the carb mounted end of the cable, otherwise, if the plastic for the trigger has worn or the cable stretched, it may require parts.

After looking at the weed eater again I noticed a black L shaped bracket that holds the throttle cable which is attached via a star screw.

I tightened this up and the cable is now taut. Of course this was after I messed with the screw on the throttle which I assume controls the idle? I'll check this out tomorrow when I try to start it.

Thanks for all your help.
