Broken throttle - sticking

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by trd2000, Dec 23, 2012.

  1. Just got off the spirit. The throttle on the vtr is stuffed. I'm guessing tied down too hard. Wankers.

    Any tips on what to check and how to fix? First day in tassie and a busted bike isn't good
  2. Pull it apart and have a quick look. Sometimes that’s all that’s needed. After being tied down something may have dislodged slightly and may be rubbing. Shouldn’t take you more than a couple of minutes.
  3. Thanks :) had a play with it and got it working well enough. Gonna strip it right down when we get back to melb. At least it came good!
