Question about 1999 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
G'day con Could be that gunk has built up between the twist grip and the handlebar . you will need to take it off and give it a good clean with crc or something similar.Otherwise you may find that the cable itself has frayed,these broken wires get jammed inside the protective steel wrap.This usually happens around the cable guides at the thottle or carburettor ends,pull the carb throttle slide,twist on the throttle and check for a smooth transition between open and closed.If it keeps sticking their is really no alternative to buy a new cable.CAUTION:Make sure you fix this before you ride,Otherwise you could end up in the back of a meat wagon(ambulance) and that's enough to make you CRY CON.....HeheheheHaaahaaa. regards....Flabbycat.

First check your throttle cable. Generally the cable will be need to be lubed. If that is not the case, then you will need to get your throttle return spring replaced.
