First: If the weather is cold where you live,it's possible that somethin in the throttle system may have iced up.

Second:Are your throttle cables adjusted correctly??? If they're not,that could cause the throttle to stick.There's a section in the OM explaining the throttle adjustment procedure.

Third:Has anyone worked on your machine recently??If so,it's possible that somethin didn't get put back together right.

And fourth: A component in the system may be goin bad.

At any rate,ya wanna get it checked and fixed ASAP,as a sticking throttle can get ya into some real serious trouble, real quick.

Anyways, there's a couple things to look at. Good luck. Dave!!!
