Throttle adjustments

The slop in the throttle cable of my new to me Daytona 675 is too much for me to handle. It's okay on the straights, but has my confidence shaking in the corners.

I've turned the adjuster by the handlebars all the way out, and it made it a little better, but there still is too much slack for my taste. I've looked around for a video/guide on how to do major adjustments to the throttle cable, but I can't seem to find one. The manual states I need to remove the tank and Airbus. Never removed a tank before? Will I need to actually remove it, or can I just prop it up and remove the airbox?

Thanks in advance for any helpful response.

You could probably prop up the tank to remove the airbox, but it is really easy to remove the tank and it gives you more room to work. You already remove the the front 2 bolts to prop it up. Disconnect the 2 electrical connectors and the fuel line. Remove the bolt and the collar where the tank pivots. The tank lifts right off. At least for an 06-12.

Make sure you don't make the throttle cable too tight. It should have some play, otherwise turning the bars may pull the throttle. And try not to let the throttle cable anchors fall out of place. One of them is a pain to get back in.
