Does anyone have an issue with the throttle sticking when turning all the way to the right? If you adjust the free play to recommended adjustment in the manual and turn the handlebars all the way to the right the free play leaves and the throttle will not return when turned. It is also harder to twist the throttle.

I have not adjusted it yet but was thinking about it as it feels to have way too much play IMO. But currently how it is.... no it does not stick or feel any harder to throttle up when at full right or left turn. If and when I do adjust it...I will be sure to check for those issues you mentioned... thanks for the heads up.

Does anyone have the problem of the throttle sticking?
What mine does is this: I will twist the throttle, engine will just stay at same RPM, then I will hear this loud SNAP, and the engine will then respond to the throttle.
Does not behave like this all the time. And when it does, it's only once that day.
Sound familiar??
The snap sound comes from the throttle body. I believe the problem lies within the throttle body, probly more of a binding problem than a spring problem.

Lube the throttle body spring mechanism and it sounds as though 1 of ur cables should have the slack taken out of it , adjustment at throttle body .

sounds like you need to graphite the cables & make sure nothing is binding at throttle body.
that's how I have done friends Harley's' in the past w/ this problem. It has never happened to me. Old or cables get dry. U need to adjust them periodically as well. They stretch.

So what is a good way to lubricate the throttle spring??
And what kind of binding would I look for in the throttle body??

Hey Bandit

The throttle body butterfly is spring loaded , u can manually turn it , it should unload with a snap , at rest you can check for slack cable , it will be obvious, try Wd40

Thanks everyone.
Looks like I will be looking into my throttle body soon to look for binding.
In the past I have found white pastey stuff on the inside; not sure what it is.

u will know just by looking at it while you give it a few cranks when not runny of course. You would need to disconnect cables from grip & pull the end straight up in air while you inject graphite lube into the cables. There is a special liquid lube that has a needle like injector tube attached too it that goes into the cable sleeve. It is not the powder stuff that you use in locks. I do this every 5000 miles when I svs my bike. You should not have to lube the throttle body spring just look for binding there & where STG said. So, you are looking for binding @ each end & lubricating them. I also do this to the clutch cable. You will be so surprised @ how nice the cables feel afterwards. They last much longer as well cuz it really cuts down on friction. Look at adjustment when done in your manual.

I would not use wd40 as it tends to attract dirt. PB blaster much better & it doesn't effect rubber parts. But I would never use either to lube inside of cables. Not saying you are wrong. Just my opinion.:)
