    <font color="green"> Find out what's causing it to stick and fix it, instead of putting a band-aid on it... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif </font>

    <font color="green">Is there any kinks in the cable? I had a very stiff throttle peddle and sometimes stuck open, I disconected the cable and rerouted it and had no problems since...

    is your breather not sitting down flat? possibly causing the linkage to hang on it?

    If it's your cable just get a new one. It's a lot easier then messing with it all the time. Mine was tight and I put a new cable on. Now I need to be carefull because it's so easy.

    after a little bit of looking into what was going on,I realized that my return spring was over streched during my last mud outing,so I threw on a double spring system,and it works quite wonderful,thanks for the help
