Throttle

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what would cause the throttle to be hard to twist. It hurts my daughters hand. When she rides my sons crf 50 she has no problem. Do I just need to get a new cable? Any suggetions would be great thanks.

Does it snap shut? When it comes to a throttle you don't want to mess around. I would atleast pull everything apart and clean it.

What bike?

If it is snapping closed on its own then it may just be the tension of the return spring is to stiff for her, but this isn't something you want to weaken. Unless someone has replaced it with a stiffer spring for some reason, its tension should be as the manufacturer designed.

Beyond that, +1 on making sure everything is clean and lubed.
