    dual carb throttle body springs i.e. SORE TRIGGER FINGER!

    hello fellow superjet riders! I have a question i need answerin...is there any way to loose the throttle body springs so the trigger is so stiff to pull on?? and no its not the cable. I unhooked both ends of throttle cable and it slides in there like it was just hit with some KY jel...opening throttle by hand is real stiff..any McGiver moves to fix this issue?

    Your saying that the butterflys on the carb are hard to open? Does this happen when it gets hot? I know on 1200r's the Mikuni carb shaft like to bind up and cause throttle sticking, all you have to do is remove the butterfly shaft and clean it real good, then lube it up. There is a right up on here about it- but the screw in the butterfly is not designed to be removed, you have to cut the end of it off with a dremel- if your careful you can reuse it with some red loctite. You shouldnt remove the original springs on the throttle- if its too stiff and the cable is not the problem then i would think the butterfly shafts are binding.
