DeBenGuzzi Posted September 27, 2005 Report Share Posted September 27, 2005 SOOOO I'm giving my bike the once over and I goto start it I turn the throttle once let it close then again and I hear a *tink* noise the throttle is stuck full choke open. I look all over and can not figure out what would be wrong or stuck. I panic as any red blooded american does and call everyone I know Freind of mine is an Audi Mechanic I strike gold he says all the older audi's have a very similar setup for cable throttle boddies he'll take a looksie. Anywho we give a go over The TB's will open and close if you push on the linkage but it is very difficult. So we begin to disassemble (I'm worried but the dealership was closed so they're no help and I couldn't get online and would have been too slow to ease my mind) He pulls off the limkage bar that syncs them together and says "are you holding it so I can't move it on that side" I say I'm not touching anything SO turns out the linkage bar FROZE up tighter than a roman Nun took it off greased it up and the throttle snapped back into place. Almost lost the C ring too, Only lost a night of riding and I thought it would cost me 2 arms and half a leg to fix up. Moral of the story: sometimes the littlist things are the easiest to fix. Now I stick it to full throttle on purpose Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
