Theres a huge problem with my throttle, HELP!!

Hi everyone, Im the noob that wrecked on 3090 in the Forest ride about two weeks ago. Im ALMOST done rebuilding my bike (With help from my friends of course lol) but the throttle keeps getting stuck. When I pull o the throttle it stays and it doesnt come back and that would be REALLY dangerous on the road. I already tried adjusting it and everything and its no good. I dont know if Ill need to buy a new wire or not. So if anyone has any tips that could help, it would be greatly appreciated. I cant wait to get back out!!

is the throttle cable kinked?

or does it 'feel' like the problem is in the grip? have you pulled the 'hand-grip throttle-box' apart? (black thing the throttle cables are in)

you didn't adjust the cable too tight?

also is the throttle tube clean, did you put new grips on and get glue on the tube?

Could be one of several things:

Your grip is rubbing on the switch pod
Your cable is kinked
There is some foreign substance blocking the return
Your cable is dirty
The switch pod is broken
The throttle tube is broken

You should take the switch pod apart and see if there's anything binding/ broken inside.

Look at the cables and see if they're routed properly and there are no bends/ breaks/ kinks

Look at the FI or carb system for opening/ closing the throttle and make sure there is no foreign substance in there blocking it

Disconnect the cables and see if you can open/ close the throttle by hand

After you disconnect the cables, see if you can move them freely by hand

If you're not comfortable with doing these things, take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and they'll diagnose/ look at it free of charge.
