Its going to be easier to do this with the tank off so shut off the fuel shut off valve and remove the tank. There is just a bolt under the seat to remove it. Make sure not to let the excess gas from the hose spill on anything important. Now you should be able to see where the thottle cable or cables connect to the carburetor. You should be able to disconnect the cables now. If you can pull them out and slip the throttle off and split the housing. You should be able to do this with a number 2 screwdriver with the 2 screws in the housing. Once its split you should be able to see everything and unhook the cables from the throttle. When putting everything back together make sure to adjust the throttle to have about 3 to 5 mm of play. Good luck and I hope this helps
