Got unwanted cruise control atm. Throttle is staying stuck at whatever position I hold it to. Currently got the airbox off and played with the adjustment but it makes no difference. Definitely not the bar end or grip sticking as ive taken the bar end and nut off completely . Screws on the butterflies are tight. Free play at the throttle is good. Spring return is strong until I reconnect the cables then it sticks again. 

My thoughts are possibly need new cables?
Am i missing something to check?


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

I had this every time I washed my bike, water getting in the throttle on h bars (cover it now) top off oil in and cured ! You might have cable fraying due to kink or tight run, I would def go for cable trouble as you suggest .

Remember if you were messing with the guiding of the cables.
Check if the cables are guided correctly,and then play with the cable adjusters on the throttle
rsv cables are very sensitive and the will stuck even with a little different guiding.
For sure the cables are aging,and they will not be as free moving as a new set of cables

Most likely the push cable giving you issues. Add the pull cable first and see how it reacts. Adjust as necessary. Up to you if you then add the push cable.. I don't run one and never have on any bike I've had

With the cables off does the metal wire move smoothly in the plastiv sleeving? .

I found after stripping my bike that the routing round the l/h side of the headstock was crucial to smooth operation,a mm or so either way and I had the same happen

Cheers Ian . This all started last year after the bike got knocked over but after changing bar enda I sorted it but now its worse than ever. I've had the throttle bodies off over winter so it may be a routing issue.

Yes quite possibly but it was fine all laat year after replacing the grips and barends so even though I suspect the bar is slightly bent it must be something else. Im going to have a look later today and I'll see what's going on with it.

Ok looks like it is the bar causing the problem. Ive straightened it out and put it all back together and it seems fine only thing is ive had to move the tube slightly further down the bar to stop it pinching on the bend and locktighted the nut the bar end bolts to because it now catches the grip if its wound sll the way in. Hopefully it will be ok now leaving it to go off and test tomorrow.
