Mine did that and it the recommendation I got was to go to a bicycle shop
and get a bottle of this teflon-based cable lubricant. It works wonders!
It comes in a small black bottle (maybe 6 ounces) with a metal tube
applicator. It was 6 or 7 bucks as I recall. I can't remember the name of
the product, but I can look tonight. All I did was open up the throttle
housing and free the cable end enough to get the metal applicator in there
(its almost like a needle) and squirt the stuff in there until it ran out
near the carbs. Silky smooth.

Subject: Throttle return issue?
I've been having a problem with my throttle return. It tends to hang up for
a second before returning to the idle position. I looked that the microfiche
on bikebandit.com and couldn't figure out which spring was the return spring
on the carbs. Anyone replace this before and have a part number? I suppose
it's possible I'm looking in the wrong place to solve the problem too... Has
anyone had a sticky throttle and what they did to fix it?
