Throttle appears to be "sticking".
« on: May 11, 2012, 08:38:17 pm »
From an older post:  The problem isn't the throttle cable.  The throttle itself snaps back fine.  When Idling, the idle is rough, and jumpy.  When the bike is still, and you blip the throttle, the engine returns to idle, but slowly.  When moving, the engine maintains revs (where ever I rev to) until I very delicately release the clutch (into the next gear), and the rpms settle down.

I'm having this same problem described above on my '98 Connie.  It seems to have happened all of a sudden.  I don't ride it as much as I should since I have a second bike.  I've also noticed that I have very little idle adjustment with the knob.

If anyone could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated!  I'm not afraid of getting my hands dirty, I just haven't done much more than brakes and body parts.

Got my '06 Connie with the same problem.  Hung Idle.  It's the carbs.
I was brand new to the bike, so I had a shop do it.  Once the carbs were
serviced, problem solved.  BTW... Carb cleaner (fuel additive) didn't help with mine. 

You may want to consider sending them to SISF for a proper servicing.
Something I've been trying to get done, for overflow tubes and jet mod.

Good luck!!
