Yep - throttle cable time.

The guy I bought my 02 from just added a Throttle Rocker, but it still will wear your wrist out. Changed my cables over to the new style and it is a different bike.

Don't mess around with band-aids, just drop the $200 and be happy. I am sure glad I did!

Good luck.

It's a lot easier than it looks to replace the throttle cables. You'll be glad you did it when finished........ :D

+1 on all of above.
Cable replacement gave me peace of mind. But I noticed the biggest difference when I cleaned and regreased the throttle handle
