  • Sticky Throttle needs unsticking - Help!

    Have sprayed inox down the cables, have cut a bit off the grip, the tube appears to move freely in the switchblock.

    An other suggestions?

    Will take tank off soon to check the cable routing & the other end, but if I can avoid it that would be super.

    Thanks

          Do it the dodgy way and put another return spring on yer throttle body/carby ?

          Disconnect the cable from the throttle body/carby/carbies and see if they are returning by themselves, you can then also pull your switch block apart and see if the cable is running freely without any load on it.

          You should never spray inox or any lubricants down cables etc, it generally will cause you no end of grief later on. If the cable is dry, graphite powder is the trick

                Or do it properly and fix it.
