The 2 most likely problems are - the cable needs cleaning and re-oiling.

There is a loose strand of wire in the cable that is causing it to bind..

Throttle is jammed on 09 heritage classic, won't return

From your description, the following is usually the cause:

Remove twist grip from end of handlebar, and apply a THIN coating of hi-temp grease to the handlebar end where the throttle sleeve rides.

Lube the throttle cables.

Check cable routing, making sure that there's no tight bends, and it's not hanging up, or pulling.

Check for weak/broken throttle return spring (if there i one)

Electronic throttle control

I have a 2008 Road King Classic with (the first year) TBW (Throttle By Wire - replacing throttle cables) and have no problems with it, and it doesn't do as yours does, but acts smoothly like a cable system.

My first suggestion is to take the twist grip off (you have to remove the master cylinder and switch housing) and check it's bore, and the handlebar end it rides on, for any built up crud (rust, dried up lube, etc.).

Electric fan on my 1999 jeep cherokee classic wont shut off after you turn ignition off what could be the issue?

the relay is maybe sticking.
or there is a call for cooling when the engine is off.

if the fan turns off after a min or two then its ok.

if the fan stays on and will not trun off ever even after 30 mins then the relay is staying on and needs to be taken out and replaced.

I have a sticky accelerator on my 02 wr426 ?

They can stick where the throttle tube turns on the handlebar, or the rubber grip touches the throttle assembly, assuming the cables are not frayed. they fray usually at either end, inside the twist grip or at the carby connection

Twist button.

Throttle tube has either become damaged (hidden by the grip) or has been pushed inwards when you fell. Loosen housing bolts on the clamp and slide the whole thing a few mm's outwards..prob just the grip fouling on the end of the bars.
