Question about 2009 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
2009 Heritage... It was running in the garage to warm up and when I got on to ride, the throttle will not move. I took apart the switch housing to check everything in there and it was fine. The throttle cable itself would not pull even by hand... I can't find anything on the net to further diagnose and the shop will be happy to take a look at $100/ hr...

High Anonymous, try squirting some Bike Aid Dry Slide into the cables. Good luck

Bring it over let me ride her for a few years and I'll fixit for a small fee. That front mount may be worn enough to cause this. May be a timing thing, or a vacuume leak at one head, get some wd 40 and spray on the manifold when she is running, rev it up and spray it, if you have some leak this will make it show up. Then clean her up, get that junk off my engine before you bring it over.

I'm not really sure on your '06 but I don't think Harley has changed them. Each cable has a metal ferrel on the end of the cable housing. On this metal piece is another piece that is kind of like a split ring. Once you adjust the cable as loose as you can get it, the cable housing should pull out of the switch housing. You may have to spray some penetrating oil in there. Just kind of wiggle it while pulling it straight out. I think that's the way it works on the later models. Earlier models had threaded ferrels.

Testimonial: "A little WD-40 inside housing and lot of wiggling and a thin bladed screwdriver from outside to pry and it came out. Thanx for your help. "

You have not mentioned the spark plug. Did not check or did not mention here? Anyway, please check if the rear plug is getting blueish spark. You also mention of an asthamatic running. It could be fuel problem as well. Remove the rear spark plug wire, insulate it and try to run the bike a short period. See if there is any difference. And then come back to me.

The classic indicator of a clogged idle jet is that the bike won't idle unless the choke is on. It may or may not rev if throttle is applied. If the bike has been sitting (sometimes as little as 3 weeks) the **** that is sold as gasoline will evaporate and leave deposits that clog the idle jet, and maybe the main jet.
If you can get the bike to rev, it indicates the main jet is not clogged, only the idle jet. Pull the idle jet out and see if the you can see light thru the orifice. If the jet is clogged DO NOT try to unclog it with anything that could alter the size of the jet. A straight piece of fine wire is ok, or just use carb cleaner to blow it out. If it ain't passin' light, it ain't passing fuel.
Ideally you would pull the carb off, remove all of the attached pieces, remove the idle air screw plug to remove the screw, soak the carb and pieces in cleaner, blow the passages out, and reassemble. You can likely get by with just cleaning the jets.
The suggestions of SeaFoam or other additives will work to keep the buildup of deposits down. They just don't do a lot of good when the fuel isn't flowing thru the jets.
Open your fuel cap and take a sniff. If what you smell reminds you of paint thinner, drain that **** out. it is no longer gasoline, all thought it will burn.
Good luck. Fuel additive (Stabil, Seafoam, Yamaha, Kawasaki, etc) and a battery tender are your friends when you bike is just sitting.
