The actuator cable might need adjusting. And I have read that a dirty cruise filter may also be the cause.

That would be tied in with the next post of bad cruise filter. Have you replaced the cruise and sub filters on the sides of the bike? They are small foam filters that get crumbly with age. I have seen old stock in the wrapper still that crumpled in the wrapper before opening. You can make them out of foam brushes if yours don't crumble to get the size and shapes.
There are posts on replacing these and one may have the shapes and sizes to make them to.

Also, have you cleaned your control switches with electrical contact cleaner yet? That may help, do all your switches yearly.
