    Thanks for the suggestion. Sure would check it out and post it here.

    Thanks @ashwanth.r and @rsk_kelkar for your guidance and support.

    I managed to open handlebar throttle assembly, carburetor end of cables and throttle tube. It was fun and learning experience and here is what I found.

    Throttle cable 1 is bit jammed within housing, cable 2 is fine and moves freely within housing.

    Lot of rust in throttle tube but there is no friction in it, tube slides freely. Sprayed bit of WD40 on it before reassembling.

    I think I also found the origin of problem: the housing of the wire 1 is cracked in the middle at the point where it rubs against the T bar ( not sure about the right word for it, it's where chasis no of the bike is imprinted ) below the handlebar.

    So I guess I need to replace throttle wire 1 and hopefully it should be fine after that.

    While I was at it I also found similar problem in clutch cable; clutch wire housing is cracked in the middle at the point where it rubs against the T bar. It might be the reason that my clutch feels bit hard, so it might also need replacement.

    I see that there are lot of wires ( mostly electric ) which rub against the T bar and it's a matter of time before wear and tear of them also gets an ugly turn. Is there any preventive maintenance for it.

    May be the teflon sleeve disintegrated or it was not routed properly. Don't lube any cable in GS.

    Like Rsk said, rust under throttle grip is a common problem. In my bro's Activa, the grip is completely jammed due to corrosion. Use a good, thick, gel-like grease (Castrol Premium Formula Gel or Mobil Delvac) once in a while. WD40 is okay but it won't stay 'in place'.

    Replace both with new. Keep the old #2 cable as a spare.

    In general, the clutch of a GS150R is hard wearing (+ve) and heavy (-ve). In other vehicles, clutch is much light (+ve) but plates have a shorter life (-ve). Yes, replace clutch wire but route it properly.

    Common problem in all GS150Rs. Only thing we can do is to cover that part of wiring harness which rubs against the chassis with some insulation tape.

    Please spare the GS150R thread my friend/bot. Already we are wondering how to procure spares for this discontinued model; the last thing we would do is to order Cialis from you.

    Hi, all due to the corona lockdown found lots of time at hand to do household chores and DIYs, the following tip i had read in Gilberts post a long time ago ,so decided to post it with photos, the idea being to force more air into the airfilter, whether it has any benefits to me{i rarely go above 60kph} needs to be seen, i did find a slight increase in mileage, and throttle play.

    Interesting idea to increase the surface area of air filter mesh, I hope to try it some day.

    But how does the mesh hold on to that smaller internal metal pipe now. Any looseness in the grip?

    You need to apply glue,the more the better, I used fevibond applied to both sides, after having dried, glued them together by keeping some books on top. (not heavy books )

    I also did similar mod with Suzuki air filter for my RTR to increase airflow. Can you let me know how did u open the air filter mounting point plate from air filter.. I did it cutting the pipe from inside with c shaped cross knife.

    Its simple, holding in one hand, invert the airfilter, and start tapping gently on the black plastic downwards, it will come off, dont have photos now, will send some if you are unable to do so,

    thanks.I already cut the air intake pipe from inside.I tried inverting and tapping airfilter, but the adhesive is pretty strong. Will try to heatup a little bit and try to remove.

    here is my airfilter which i cut from inside(Bit crude, But works).On top of this stock Suzuki filter Im using outer airfilter layer from RTR in order to keep it bit clean.
