Early 07 1200Gt (39,000km) or 24,000 miles.
A week ago we left on a 5,000km/3,000mile ride and the throttle return was crisp. It snapped back as it should.
Two days before getting home the throttle refused to snap back any more. It had to be rolled back by hand to get to idle, kind of like having a 'Thottlemeister' on.
Cruise control was off before the trip and after. The threaded adjustment nuts for the two throttle cables had not moved. (the throttle cable and the cruise cable)
Stock airbox and mapping and it has run flawless up until this point. Now it will surge a bit at 3,000rpm and it didn't return to idle twice. This could be a symptom of the sticky throttle or something else so I would first like to eliminate the sticky throttle.
I know it could be symptomatic of the airbox or mapping getting out of wack but the sticky throttle symptom isn't mentioned much when these issues are discussed.
Suggestions on how to lubricate the throttle or what else to look for before getting the airbox/mapping checked out?
