Throttle stuck

My throttle seems to be stuck on the RC. If I twist it back, it will not rotate back.

I took the bar end off, but that didn't do anything. Has anyone had this issue? Any places I should start looking?

There's another adjustment at the throttle bodies. I believe you have to remove the airbox. You might try there. Sounds like the cable is binding?

I believe the RC uses a 2 cable push-pull type setup...the return cable may have come off or something...possibly the springs on the TB"s...just guessing at this point....

If there isn't a little bit of play in the cables, this can make them bind. Also worth lubricating.

Little point lubing cables, they are nylon lined so generally if they feel like they need lubing they need replacing

If the problem started out of the blue (i.e. not after any other work) then you will probably find a frayed cable at the t.b. end
