    Stuck or sticking throttle cable?

    I was riding my ski yesterday after work and after a couple WOT runs, the throttle cable seemed to be sticking. It wouldn't return to the idle position when letting off the throttle. RPM's would come down very slowly--almost like something was sticking.

    Anyone else see this? Aside from lubing the cable does anyone have any lubrication suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    I must've made and impression--I thought everyone was right there with me... Starting to feel like I have a problem but rehab is for quitters!

    The manual calls for lubing internal engine components through the intake breather hose each 50 hours or 12 months (page 3-23 on my service manual). I've never done this. Guess I know what I'm going to do as soon as I get home.

    I just couldn't get past the cable sticking for some reason.

    Thanks beerdart.

    Maybe the "wire" is actually a "cable".

    Seriously, I believe they are fly by wire but they still have a cable too.

    And how did I not meet you down South troyheb?

    Craig if I remember correctly there's something in the service manual about spray lubing the throttle valve every 50 hours or something.

    edit:

    oh wow I'm late to the partyh

    Not sure, I think I remember seeing you and your ski at Gros.
