Exclamation Need help with Thottle cables ASAP!

I was changing my right clip-on and I decided to take the lazy route and not change the throttle cables with the new clip-on( it came with the throttle cables and everything else). I took the off of my old clip-on while it was still attached to the forks and slipped it on to the new bar. It seems to go fine but not the throttle is sticking a little. It doesnt snap back closed like its supposed to. Could I have damaged the cables by pulling on them? Is there a way to fix this problem or should I just go ahead and switch out the entire thing and change the cables???

this is really hard to conceptualize without pictures. are you sure you put the two cables in the right place? i'm thinking that if it came with new cables then there's probably something to that...... but then again, i can see how you wanted to be lazy cuz those are hard to get to (you must remove the airbox, throttle bodies, etc....) and a cable's just a cable after-all. if i were you i'd verify that you have the right cable going to the right place (since there are two) and that whatever spring is involved is working properly and that nothing is rubbing or restricting the throttle's movement.

Ok, lets see if I can explain this better...

The throttle and the cables in the pic cam off the new bar. So basically I just romoved the bar and put my controls on it. After I did the trottle sticks... So did I mess something up?

if ur bar doesnt have glue residue then it shouldnt stick..check to make sure that ur cables move freely when not attached...ie..move the cable in and out with ur hand..if they feel fine then they arent kinked...u may have the cables wrong like stated above..i had a sticky throttle then realized i had some glue on my bar

I didnt mess with the cables on the bike at all so they cant be kinked or anything. Im gonna go check the bar for glue.

make sure inside the throttle tube is clean..i had some glue get inside from sliding on a new grip..the bar itself might not have anything on it..if u didnt mess with the cables then im pretty sure that it is glue...like i said make sure u have the right cable in the right place...

Try to free some pre-slack and see if that helps. I usually remove all my throttle slack, cause I don't like it. However if I take of too much, I noticed the throttle wouldn't roll back to closed by it self so easily.

the manual specifies 2-4 mm of freeplay in the throttle FYI...basically nothing, but something. i've got mine right at 2mm..... i hate having a lot of freeplay in the throttle as well, seems utterly pointless and is very annoying. when i twist my wrist, i want that thing to GO!

glad u got is squared away..this site really does help...quick and accurate response..kinda the opposite of the dealers...they would have sold u a new throttle tube, cable, grip, and clip-on..then charged $80 an hour to put it on with 3 hr labor charge..
