17mm on the oil cable, throttle should be roughly 15-20mm of play side to side. To do it the redneck way set tight enough that it's holding the throtlle open, start it up and let it bounce off the TORS (rev limiter that detects a frozen throttle cable) and then loosen it until the TORS shuts up. I don't recommend doing that tho it's hella noisy and not entirely safe.
choke cable I generally leave at about half the tension of the throttle, but I've broken a few too, could probably stand to go a bit looser.
When hell freezes over, we'll ride there too.
