2009 throttle and rear brake questions
It's been a long time since I posted anything here, but I'm hoping for some wisdom/advice on a throttle issue. A long post, so please bare with me.
I have the 09 LT with 36K+ miles, bought new and serviced almost totally at the dealer, except oil changes, always garaged, except on trips of course so it has had some rainy nights uncovered, but overall in good condition, and not road too hard, much. That was a long sentence.
Anyway, I'm getting a very sticky throttle; actually sticks open while riding but will slowly close if I let go, during longer trips where I'm doing 300 to 500 mile days in temperatures raging from 40 F to 90 F, but when the bike is cool and on short trips, no sticking, the throttle will snap back to closed relatively quick. Does this sound like bad throttle cables, possibly cable adjustments or maybe something down in the throttle body, actuator or sensor?
Any advice or knowledge is appreciated, thanks, Matt
