A new study suggests you don’t need to replace your throttle cables if you have a metal throttle cable.
The study, conducted by the University of Colorado Boulder, suggests that replacing the throttle cable that comes with your motorcycle might not be a bad idea.
The researchers used a standard, cheap test tube for their analysis.
Here’s how the study came to the conclusion:We found that the copper cable is very susceptible to corrosion, and that it is much more difficult to detect the corrosion than the aluminum cable.
So if you are looking for a replacement for your old metal throttle cables, then we would suggest you invest in an inexpensive, durable test tube.
What makes the copper test tube so attractive?
The copper cable has no conductivity, so it is very difficult to corrode.
Additionally, the copper is brittle, so the cable will often fall apart if it’s dropped on a hard surface.
In addition, the metal tube has a better surface-to-air connection than aluminum.
And the tube is easily repairable, the researchers said.
“We believe that copper is a very attractive material, and the copper tube can provide you with a durable cable,” said David Hirsch, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University at Albany and co-author of the study.
Hirsch added that the test tube is also much cheaper than the metal cables, because it has an average life span of only five years.
The study is available online and in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
