Then, why is my throttle sticking on my motorcycle?
A sticky throttle could be caused by worn cables, lack of lubrication in the cables or the cable getting bound up somewhere in the mechanism. Or it can be caused by an issue with the carburetor or EFI. If the screws in the throttle housing are too tight it could cause the cable to stick.
Regarding this, what does the throttle do on a motorcycle?
Internal combustion engines In an internal combustion engine, the throttle is a means of controlling an engine's power by regulating the amount of fuel or air entering the engine. In a motor vehicle the control used by the driver to regulate power is sometimes called the throttle, accelerator, or gas pedal.
Most commonly, a stuck throttle results from debris getting caught between the throttle tube and handlebar that makes it sticky. Another common cause is when the throttle cable gets stuck in the open position and doesn't release when you let go of the throttle.
