Default Re: Throttle seems to be sticking

Although that sounds more like an air leak, you can verify or eliminate the slide as the problem by removing the air cleaner and looking down the throat of the carburetor while working the throttle grip. Use a mirror if necessary. See if it is in fact getting held up in the slide bore of the carburetor. Usually if this happens though, the engine will just scream at full throttle or close to it.
This is just step one in the diagnosis. Check it out and get back with us, ok?
