2008 Throttle problem.

Hey anybody ever have a problem with the throttle getting stuck on them. I got a 2008 and when you twist the throttle it kinda sticks it kinda annoying. It does go back but very slow, sometimes doesn't. Any help would be great.

Yeah but it was like that before I did. I tried cleaning the tube and putting some oil on it still no good.

Make sure your grip isn't pushed up against the kill switch housing. Also make sure your bar end isn't slowing down the return. If you take it off and the throttle operates fine, put blue loctite on the threads of the bolt and put the bar end back in just enough to make sure it isn't interfering with the throttle. Check to make sure you haven't pinched your throttle cables somewhere. If none of that has an effect, lube or replace your throttle cables.

If the grip is not touching the kill switch assembly or the bar end slowing it down then its possible that the handlebar is bent.... Has the bike ever been dropped on the right side?

I don't think the bike was dropped never know thou I'm not the first owner. I think I'll take the throttle off again tonight and put a straight edge on the handle bar and see if it's bent. When I remove the throttle it works perfect it only happens when I slide it over the handle bar. Maybe it is bent thanks.

Any chance it was transported using Canyon Dancers? The first versions tend to make the throttle stuck.

If you want to check if the handle bar is bent, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, check the distance from bar end to frame , then repeat the process to the right...

That's assuming both factory bars are either all the way forward or back at their stops.
When I first got mine they weren't at their forward stops. I loosened each bar and pushed them forward to their stop and remeasured= Even

check for equal+proper alignment.

then spray some silicone lube on the plastic carriertube.....lotss

get it to run out of the tube end.


rotate throttle 2-3 times and douche out again.....repeat until not hanging up.....

You mean spray under the plastic carriertube? Between the plastic and handlebar? If so then yes i agree with you.

I wouldnt spray a lot on the plastic carriertube between the rubber grips and the plastic carriertube because that will cause your grips to rotate when you try to accelerate...

Hey all just wanted to say thanks for all your guys help. I think I figured it out my cables seem to be junk if there is the smallest bend in them you can't even twist the throttle. So I'm going to get some new ones and try it out.
