throttle return is slow

hey all,

the throttle return on my bike seems really slow and harder to crank than my cbr. is this normal?

I will upload a video today to describe what I'm noticing.

If you're not falling you're not trying hard enough

Re: throttle return is slow

Have you tried lubing the cables? Most bike shops will sell a tool and bottle of cable lube you can use to lube them.

Otherwise, check for sharp bends in the cables.

Sometimes, if the return cable is too tight it will slow up the closing of the throttle
