    Normally just adjusting the free play of the cable at the lever will fix this problem. If not then you also have to adjust the free play at the throttle bodies and re synch them after doing so.
    Here's the easy part from the factory manual:

    Have you checked the cables? Ever replaced them? Had a similar problem on my '04 1150 GSA and replaced the cable. Works fine now. The replacement isn't that difficult to do but you should definitely read a manual first to identify the cable routing. While you're in there check the Bowden box for the clutch, throttle and throttle body cables. You might be surprised at what you find in terms of cable wear.
