Unhappy Sticky throttle help

I think I may have a sticky throttle , I have noticed when I let off the throttle bike maintains current speed. Is this what it is and is it a simple fix or do I need to bring it in to a shop? It's happened a few times past couple weeks.

Check if the grip is grabbing something like bare ends or the clip ons

Check your throttle freeplay also, it may be too tight.
If you like, you can bring it by and I'll look at it, no charge.

Thanks Patrick, I'll come by tomorrow. I also need to have my chain slack checked, I was supposed to bring it back after a few hundred miles and haven't had a chance.

I seem to be having the same issue and was going to post about it. I'm thinking it's the grips that I changed to. I didn't apply any extra glue, only used warm water like the direction said. I applied some lube between the grip and the handlebar, which seemed to have helped for a couple of days, but it seems to stick again. Although the lube I applied was the chain lube since it was in my hand at the time as I was lubing the chain..

might just have to lubricate it. or its on its way out. i had a sticky throttle on my old CB once, near cruise control like. lubed it and it never went away, that is until it snapped in the middle of fm149.
