throttle problem

I am reassembling my bike because I took the upper off to put on blinkers and took the tank off to dynomat it. Well I put the upper back on and the tank and I noticed that my throttle was acting funny. When the handlebars are straint or turned to the left, you can fully open the throttle and when you let it go it snaps shut like normal. But if the handlebars are turned to the right, when you open the throttle and let it go it stays in place. To close the throttle you have to push it forward with your hand. I never noticed this before. Anybody have any ideas on whats going on?

I also unbolted the tank and had it leaning forward a little to get the black plastic that is under the tail off. Could this have affected the throttle cable at all?

The cables may be pinched where they exit the frame (right side of steering head).
Thats the only place I can think of.

Check the cable routes when turned fully right. Also loosen the nuts where the cables enter the throttle housing, may need to adjust the position of how the cables enter the housing, then tighten, but do not over tighten!
