Throttle is sticking

I have a 2003 Yamaha R6. The throttle keeps sticking and i'm not sure why. When I go to release the throttle and grab my clutch, the engine runs real high until i manually turn the throttle back down. Any ideas or suggestions from anyone who has had this problem or heard of it would be great.

Thanks

Throttle return spring broken or disconnected? Throttle cable needs lube?
Something binding the housing at handlebar (seeJonEric's post)?

yep. i think this would be the most common problem. it's either stuck to the bar end, or stuck along the switch housing.

Fellas, thanks for the advice. I went home last night and pulled the throttle apart and found the bar end had been glued to the the grip. Pulled them apart, cleaned them up and now it throttle's perfectly.

Thanks, again, guys!

It "glued" itself to the bar end? Or, it just kinda got sticky somehow and stuck to the bar end?

When the new grips were put on, the threads on the inside of the handlebar some how fell off/out (not sure since i'm not the one who put the new grips on). So, when you to go screw the end bar in, it won't go. The bar end was then glued to the new grip to keep it on.
