Yeah, took the old girl out for a good thrashing today (rode her 80 miles at 3 to 5,000 rpm's before mishap, wound her out to about 5,000 rpms about a dozen times) and she was running really well (octane booster really helps these old triumphs) (but used about a pint of oil) then I noticed a spot in the throttle that seemed pretty stiff, like if I twisted it to that point (about 3 K rpms in 3rd gear) there was resistance then she felt free past that point. Well, eventually the throttle stuck in fully open position, had to use brakes to slow, when I would pull in clutch to downshift, it would rev right back up again towards 5-6 K rpm. So I turned off ignition when in 2nd gear on the parkway offramp leading into the Bronx and shifted to neutral and then coasted to the shoulder. Cable seemed free enough down into the carb. Upon inspection cable would move in and out of carb top piece as well. Think maybe the throttle slide is stuck. So after about a half hour of fruitless fiddling started pushing the old girl home, would have been about 10 miles and straight through Harlem, up hills etc., but there was no way I was leaving my old Tiger behind. After a couple of miles, I'm pushing her through the Bronx (wearing my Lewis Leathers Bronx jacket which is fitting enough) and fellow named Rich with some grocery bags asks what's wrong, I explain throttle cable is stuck, requires I think dismantle and repair carb, or at least free up internal throttle slide mechanism which has a spring that should be taking the slack out of the cable but isn't working. Rich says I can help you out calls his friend Pat with a pickup truck. Pat arrives with his 1974 Chevy 4x4 pickup, and is literally the world's nicest guy, won't take any money other than let me buy him some gas (I offered him $50 but he wouldn't take it, said it wouldn't be a good deed if he did). There are definately good folks in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx. We pushed the old girl up into his truck and now she's safe and sound in her garage spot. So .. about the stuck throttle, what do you guys think is the problem?
