    My throttle started sticking like a bitch, even just under normal driving conditions. When I got home i took off the aircleaner to check out the carb so put a return spring on it, but it already has one. What could be making it stick and how do I fix it?

    Thottle cable binding, gas peddle binding, weak spring(s), broken spring, carb problems.

    Disconnect the throttle cable and see if you can feel any resistance in movement on the cable, peddle or throttle lever itself.

    May tell you where to look.

    if you pulled of the carb recently and replace the gasket...to small of one can cause the butterfly thingsy (botom) to get caught in it...
