Throttle sticking

Recommended Posts

Gidday all,

I just bought a 09 YZ 250 new and the throttle is sticking on, i've pulled everything apart and found nothing wrong, the throttle feels fine but about 5 minutes into a ride it sticks then is fine for awhile then sticks again, its got me baffled....anyone had this happen before ?

Cheers

Start by lubing the throttel cable and the throttle tube. If it still sticks, replace the throttle cable. If it still sticks, replace the throttle tube w/ an aluminum throttle tube w/ bearings. If it's still sticking then I don' know, oh, maybe check the slide in the carb before you buy any of the above parts.

MAX!!!

I've had a problem with a sticky throttle due to incorrect cable routing. I understand the bike is new, was it apart before the sticky throttle issue arose?

:thumbsup: Check the cable routing. I worked at dealships that hire anyone to put the bikes togather. They almost never get the routing right.
