Throttle cable

I was installing the throttle tube mod and noticed the usual 2 cables..one push and one pull.

I removed the push cable and left the pull one..it works fine. Do we even needs two cables???

If the throttle were to stick open for any reason you would have no way to close it.
I'd attach it.
