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.

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.

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.
