    throttle lever not going back fast enough when releasing it

    I've got a problem with the throttle lever, when released it slowly goes back and then just stays near the 10% throttle. Is this just a tightening issue.

    Try moving the throttle linkage at the carbs and see if it moves smoothly. If so, you may need a new cable.

    Beware, I bought a brand new Kawasaki throttle cable for my Ultra 150 and it was bad right out of the package--it had several broken strands. If you buy a new cable, check it over carefully and don't accept one that isn't perfect.

    Have you lubricated the throttle?

    sounds like you need a new cable. Make sure you dont the new one in backwards. that will break it.
