Question about 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900

1 Answer

Sticking Throttle I have an 05 Thruxton - went out for a ride yesterday and noticed that the throttle was sticking. Started out with just barely noticing it, but after an hour or so it was sticking bad - to the point that I needed to turn the throttle grip manually everytime I wanted less gas. Anyone have this issue or know how to fix?

Two further possibilities: the cable itself is frayed, or grit and dirt have got in and are preventing the cable from sliding within the lining. If it's either of these cases, I think you'll need a new cable

Throttle sticking


A sticking throttle is not something to mess with if you don't know what you are doing. You could accelerate and cause a wreck injuring or killing someone. Take it to a professional and live long to ride longer.

This sounds like the throttle spindle sticking, or the cable sticking, if you remove the top cover and air filter, then push the throttle spindlefully back to the stop screw with your finger, then try again, the spindle may be a little gummed up.

I would suspect that the float is sticking. Checking will require removal of (in order): seat, tank, air filter box/backing plate, and finally, the float bowl at the bottom of the carb. Insure that the float is not flooded, and that the float needle is free of trash.

My 2000 cavalier was at the stop sign and the engine for no reason started racing to 3000 rpms nearly throwing me into traffic! WTF?!!! the wrench service light just came on yesterday and stalled out once


Sounds like a throttle position sensor sticking in a very dangerous position. The throttle position sensor does exactly what it sounds like. Senses the throttle position and sends it to the injectors, if the position sensor is sticking open it is a very dangerous situation. Get your vehicle to a mechanic and have them scan the check engine light and besure that is the issue before going any further, but that is your most likely answer, Good Luck!

Find where the throttle cable connects to the butterfly valve on your carb. Twist the throttle and see if the butterfly valve is sticking open. Your cable or the valve itself might be stuck, and needs lubed. The sell tools to shoot compressed oil into the throttle cable sleve, or start cleaning / oiling hte carb depending on what you determine is sticking.
