If the inner liner on the cable housing is wearing, you wouldn't notice it usually by hand, but the servo motor might feel a touch more resistance that it is programmed to accept. I would try just replacing both cables as a first step. looks to be around $50 each, so its not a huge investment. I have already replaced mine on my M7 as well as the throttle cable, not because of a code or error, but for peace of mind on a 7 year old sled. although your m8 is only 4 years old. What kind of hours/miles on your machine?
