throttle delay

its all good when i get on the throttle, but when i let off its taking way too long to get back down in RPMs. I'm thinking throttle cable but i wanted to get some other opinions before i take the tank off.

Re: throttle delay

Does the throttle snap shut when the bikes not running? When you twist the grip and let go it should snap shut like a mouse trap. If its lazy on the return then yes, its to do with your cables. Could ether be old crusty cables or cable routing. I just fixed this problem on mine by replacing the pull cable and lubing the push, then re routing them.

If it does snap shut then could be the carb slides, fuel mixture something faulty. Best bet is get it in the dyno, the operator should be able to tell you what's up at once.

Re: throttle delay

Could also be the throttle return spring if the throttle doesn't snap shut, like said above ^

Re: throttle delay

It could also be your grip. This happened to my buddy after a day at the track. His grip had worked it's way down against the bar end which provided just enough friction to keep it from returning on its own.

Can't hurt to check these little things first.

This has happen to me as well. I actually trimmed my grip to keep it from happening so often.

My throttle tube has a raised bit that stops the grip sliding up it...

Re: throttle delay

Crusty cables it was... thanks guys. This forum is awesome, I just got the bike 3 weeks ago so hopefully I'm nearing the end of these problematic questions.
