throttle won't return

Everything seems fine but the throttle will not return. (like riding an old Harley with a dead man throttle). This system not covered in the manual. Anyone know where the return spring is? The throttle grip has a lot of friction (hard to turn) so maybe some lube or loosening of its fit?

I do have the workshop manual in pdf format. If some one can tell me how to post it, I will.

Check that the BAR END is not jammed into the throttle tube. There should be a slight gap between the bar end and the throttle grip rubber.

silentservice703 nailed it. The weather has gotten cold here, 40 F drop since the last ride, must have been enough to change dimensions. Works well now.

How do I post the manual?

I agree with Chuck. Check the bar end.

Easiest first, you know?

Mine did that ... water ingress... and a clean and lube fixed it. Usually did it after a ride in the wet!

My friends Brutale throttle has a touch of stiffness.It won't return.

I'm going to try easing off the bar end but it sounds creaky at the nipple end if you'll pardon the expression.

I'm thinking of popping open the handle bar housing and spraying the area with silicon spray..

I don't want to do anything which will attack the cable linings..
