Default Having trouble installing 1/5 turn throttle

I got it from an R6 and I can't get the lower cable to go into the housing. It's a few mm too short. Am I going to have to disconnect the cable from the throttle body? How much work is this going to be?

you should be able to adjust the slack via the throttle body side cable adjusters. prop the tank and remove the airbox and you can get to them

Already back together, it's pretty self explanatory though. Just remember to put the nub on the lower half of the switch in the hole on the handlebar. Took me an hour to figure out why it wasn't going back together.
