    1999 XLT 1200 Throttle sticking

    I take my ski to the lake starts up runs fine go riding for awhile, No issues, When I beach it for awhile, Then get back on it, It tries to take off if i pull the throttle to go, it just stays down and slow comes back up, like someone is pulling against the cable and then letting go slowly. So now, I have to baby the throttle and it will eventually after about 2-3 minutes start working fine....Any idea what would cause this? Should i put some grease on the cable?

    Where are from? If throttle cable is starting to stick its time for a new one. If you can't do the work yourself you can find a dealer or a shop by you to do it.

    You need to get in contact with oside bill. He is the carb man. He is all over this site and he does the best work for the lowest price. He is a super nice guy too.
