No snap back on throttle - September 15, 2006, 04:01 PM

Just joined today and already my bike is messing up. For some reason my throttle will not snap back at all. I have to basically snap my wrist back up to close the throttle. Did a search on here and I checked the grip, cleaned the housing, checked the wires and still no snap back. For some reason it feel like the the whole grip is aall loose and it wiggles on the bar. Been such a crappy week the weather and I was hoping to ride tommorrow. Anyone have any suggestions for me...Thanks....MJ

Clean the housing and adjust the play in the throttle. I have very little play in mine but not so tight I have to shut it off. It's really not safe to have it stick like you are describing.

Like I said, adjust the play .... loosen it up.

1. Take off your seat by removing the two allen screws at the back of the seat, underneath the outer edges

2. Unbolt the front of the gas tank from the frame

3. Slowly lift up the tank and make sure youre not going to snag any lines and prop it up with something.

4. Remove the airbox

Once the airbox is off, you can see the throttle assembly and youll be able to see the cables for the throttle

Has the bike ever been down? Its possible the handle bar is bent. That was the case on my first bike, bought it like that, salvage yard had the parts, quick fix.
