I installed the JD Jet kit today, & got the carb situated back in the bike, my last step as far as the carb went was reinstalling the throttle cables on the carb side. I installed the return cable into the bracket and onto the wheel with ease. The other cable with a curve to it was a little more difficult. I got it to seat and be snug but when I open up the throttle all the way LIGHTLY, there is the tiniest gap from where the wheel bottoms out. If I open the throttle and put a little force in WOT, the wheel will make contact with the stopping point. My question is, does the wheel have to make contact with the metal/stopping point to be considered correctly adjusted? Will that tiny gap make a difference is throttle response? With my OCD fully activated at this point, I re-adjusted the cables a trillon times to try and get it perfect but just figured I'd give it a rest before I mess something up. I know It could possibly be fine and could very well be me just over obsessing about it. I just want to make sure I do it right.

The picture with a tiny gap is with the throttle opened up all the way with the most minimal effort. The next picture with the wheel bottomed out is when I applied a little extra force on the throttle end.

P.S. Both cables have a slight amount of slack, and the throttle snaps right back when you let go. Any help would be more than appreciated.

Probably fine but there is adjustment on the cable too if I remember right. The last few years of my drz I had an fcr with a single cable so I can't recall, but I think one of the two cables has an adjuster if you pull the rubber boot back at the throttle housing.
