Help With Sticky Throttle

Recommended Posts

My CRF has a problem in the throttle. It only sticks when it is wide open, other than that it slowly snaps back. I have changed both throttle cables, the upper and lower throttle housing and the glide. I had the carb out and it seemed to be working fine. Any thiughts to make this go away would be great. Thanks!!

grip looks clear of anything. I took the throttle off of the bars to see if it was a routing issue but it still does the same thing. Is there a spring in the carb that can fail?

Try lubing your throttle cables a little bit? If you glued your grips make sure there isn't any residue that got through to the bar? I'm just shooting out ideas. :applause:

When I had the carb out I cleaned it well. When I take the throttle apart from the grip and pull it buy hand it dosent stick.

So without the grip on the throttle, the throttle is not sticky?

I didnt take the grip off, just disconnected both cables and pulled with my hands and It didnt stick. I put it back together and it sticks again. I have the throttle detached from the bars to check to see if it was routed wrong but it still sticks.

you mean with the throttle tube still on the bars but the grip removed it dosent stick? if thats the case i would say the end of your grip is touching the end of the handle bar or something.

EDIT: i think we posted at the same time oh well haha.

reinstall everything, with no grip in the throttle tube and see if it is still sticking. There may also be a small piece of something in the throttle tube assembly. It the cables slide freely the problem has to be with the throttle tube.

I would disassemble every thing. Clean all parts. Typically throttles become sticky when it gums up between the throttle and the bars. Or the grip is rubbing on the throttle housing. I use fluid film lube to lube every thing and a cable lubber to lube the cable. Also like mentioned above check the carb side of things and see if the FCR slice is gummed up.

Same thing happend to me, replace the throttle tube and that should fix it. What happens is the plastic end on the throttle tube with the grove for the cable wears down.. then when u twist the throttle the cable slips out of the grove and catches.
