Cable ties are standard in all Indo- Jap bikes, unless they are deliberately removed.

The first thing that came to my mind was, these guys at the service center are following specs and not missing something as insignificant as throttle play!

Throttle play, clutch play brake lever position etc is completely individual preference.

These are minor things, like you said you don't complain, its all good.

If you want quicker throttle response you might want a quick throttle kit.

Happy riding

The service center guys do a pretty good job 9 out of 10 times. With regards to quick throttle kit, I've said earlier that I prefer everything in the stock setup to the greatest extent possible.

I've had a major service done couple of days before starting this thread and the cables were replaced. I took the bike for a 30 km ride but didn't notice any issues.

Now that I've a better understanding thanks to the replies received, I'll check for the issues associated with zero play and post an update tomorrow.

I tried searching for cable ties but couldn't find any. Instead there are hooks welded into the frame and all cables are held together by these hooks.

I feel that a little bit of throttle play helps, specially in dense traffic.
You can move around your wrist a bit and don't have to keep it still at a particular point.
I ride around the city of Bangalore in a Pulsar 220, and surely can't imagine riding that bike through bumper to bumper traffic without throttle play. Would be difficult to control and have to be very precise with the input when starting from a standstill.
