The throttle sticks, is there a quick fix or adjustment I can make to correct this. I did replace the battery but it does not appear that the throttle cable is pinched. Any help would be great.
Thanks,

Scott

Scott the cables do need to be lubed from time to time. I use powder graphite and work it in from the top.

Loosen up the screws on the controls and slide it out. The grip may be hanging up on the end of the bar.

Are you sure you're not accidentally brushing the throttle lock on with your thumb? Easy enough to do with gloves on ....... it's the little wheel thing on the bottom of the twist grip just where the cables come out ..... (basic H-D cruise control, haha)

You may have pulled the cables out of the perches at the throttle body, make sure the cables are seated all the ways in at the throttle body.

i had been fighting this issue on my 30 day old bike for around 15 days now!! it was very aggrivating. Something had to be binding though, because when I changed my bars it cured it
