You might need to lube/replace the cables, or, if you have them, try messing around with the bark-busters where they screw into the handle bar end.

I just looked in your garage at the picture of your bike and if thats the picture of it then thats an XR200. Its way to small to be a 250 and you can tell from the plastics and frame that its a 200.

OK, before you something drastic lets look at this problem. I know this will be simplistic but it is easier that way.

take the seat and tank off

look at how the cables are routed from the carb to the throttle

make sure nothing is kinked or pinched

take the throttle off of the bars

can you twist the throttle with it off of the bars OK?

if you can you might have dirt/gunk under the throttle tube or

junk in the housing

take it completely apart and clean it

put it back together, does it work now?

if so put it back on the bars and make sure you don't put it

on too far on the bars as it will bind

now if you can't twist it off of the bars take it apart, can you

pull the cable with some pliers?

if not take the other end off of the carb, can you twist the throttle

wheel by hand? if so you have a bad cable, replace it.

This should get you going.

It's definitely a frankenbike but that's not an XR200. That's a 250 right engine case and disk brakes front and rear.

I had the same problem and i fixed it in two seconds. Just look where the cables attach to the throttle mechanism. There are two bolts/ nuts, just turn both of them all the way in and that throttle will snap back quicker then ever. Good Luck!

Im not too sure you are correct. It looks like those are dual headers and i have that same exact kind of bends in my 250.

Frankenbike as in Frankenstein. Put together from other dead XR250s.

No disrespect intended and probably overstated on my part for just having a newer model gas tank.

My bad.
