Gavethe throttle on my '85 Ltd a twist the other day (bike's been down for abit, pending some re-work on the charging system) and it was very slow / sticky to return. Where should I start looking first? Throttle cable ? Cruise control mechanism ? Throttle plate mechanism? If it's the throttle cables, can they be rehab'd (i.e. squirt in some graphite), or should I go looking for new cables?

Thanks !

My cousin and I both have 85LTDs and he had the same problem. His fix was to lubercate the return mech on the throttle body. The half moon pulley when the cable connects was sticking. Hope this helps. Pat

Lots of wd-40 to get it back to normal, than some light oil to keep it lubed.

Thanks guys ! A few squirts of wd-40 to the pulley on the throttle body, plus a couple of squirts on the other throttle pieces, did the trick. Just for future reference, how difficult is it to replace the throttle cables ?
