Throttle hang

I am a question. I wrecked my bike little over a year ago. I replaced the right handle bar. I put everything back on right. Now it has been going on since then, maybe before that, i cant remember now. I will start the bike and I usually let it warm up before I take off. Well about 20 secs or so the bike starts building rpms, like up to 2500 rpm, then I will twist the throttle foward and the idle goes back down to normal, sometimes a few more times of twisting the throttle foward, although if i twist to hard foward the bike will stall. Otherwise the bike runs tits. IS this a simple throttle cable adjustment?

sounds like it, there are two adjustments you can make one on the push cable and one on the pull, I forget which one is where but the one cable is very easy to get to, I would just follow the throttle cables and I would loose up (screwing in) the throttle cables until there is slack in them and then try.

Did you take the throttle housing apart? I'd make sure that the cables are connected correctly as well inside.

I did take it apart when I slid it onto the new bar. I did not get near the throttle body side of the cable. I destroyed the right side of the bike, I was able to rebuild all the plastics with no new ones bought, I had to replace the handle bar, foot peg with right foot controls and a few other things. It was all onme as I left the house pissed off and a cold day in Florida did not allow the Metzler to warm up for traction, I hit the pavement around 45mph, I was not hurt, did not even hit my helmet, got to love gear warn properly, well I did have a huge bruise on my left hip but all and all!

check the adjustment screws on the cable that are right by the upper right top of the fairing (on the 04-05's anyway), there are also 2 more under the tank near the throttle bodies i believe.....lastly or first, are you sure that the cable is routed correctly and not in any kind of a bind? turn the bike on, let it o the revving thing and then twist the bars back and fourth to see if anything changes with the rpms?

Have you checked the throttle tube for damage? You would have to slide it off the bar to check. Any imperfection will make it stick and not roll back.

i think it is good tube-wise, I can start it and it runs good, without me touching the throttle it starts climbing

Alright this is what I have found. The cam on the very end of the butterfly rod, where the throttle cable goes and pulls it to go, there is an ear on that cam that hits a screw that has a spring on it, like a throttle stop, when you push the throttle totally closed with the grip the spring raises up and allows the bottom "ear" to contact the end of the Idle adjustment cable, otherwise the idle adjustment does nothing. I did not touch the "throttle stop" yet, just curious if that is problem, or is it I am just seeing this thinking it is my problem? another question, how the hell do I adjust the throttle stop, I have fat sausage fingers.....

onebadcat... im having the same problem i spoke with another member and they couldnt find th eproblem and neither could the dealer so he replaced the throttle bodies and entire wire harness and to date (2yrs) has not had a problem with it.. only problem with that we dont know if it was the throttle bodies or wire harness.... mine is completely apart right now so i can access everything my cables are routed correctly, theres no binding anywerer cable or throttle... i cant start the bike since im waiting for my new exhaust to arrive to check anything but before i took my exhaust off she would idle up on her own and around 6k rpm would get stuck (while riding).... i have new throttle bodies on the way as i think something went wrong with them myself..

it looks to me the throttle stop is set to deep, I opened the air box and looked down at the butterflies, i pushed open the top butterflies to see them, there a measurable open gap at the butterflies, and when you push the throttle closed it shuts the butterflies to what I would imagine idle point. When i push the throttle closed it raises the screw/spring up about 1/8 inch and it idles at 1100 rpm then, i let go, the spring pushes down and brings the bike up to 2000 rpm.
