throttle sticking

2013 Brutale 1090 RR when up shifting the throttle is not fully closing when the grip is closed,
I can watch the shaft slowly move to closed while doing a quick open and close off the bike,
it seems to be worse when the bike is warm.
The throttle and closing cables appear to be adjusted properly, that said does anyone have any thoughts on how to adjust the throttle cables
and what might cause the throttle to stick? Thanks

Thanks for the link to the service manual
I looked through the service manual and the owners manual and did not find any info about setting the cables.
maybe its in another location


does anyone know how to set the on/ off throttle cables and care to share it here.
Will doing this change the TPS setting?

Anyone have any idea if a the choke cable could cause a sticking throttle .
Thanks

@mrmerlin: First off there is no choke cable. The "choke" lever acts on the throttle cable to partially open the throttle a tad when cold starting the bike...it is not a choke.

The description of how to adjust the throttle cables...there are two...a supply and a return if you will...is in the frame manual for your bike. I have read the instructions and performed the operation, so I know it is in there.

What your initial post describes sounds like your cables need to be lubricated.

mrmerlin,

Given that you've followed all the steps in the manual/sticky and nothing is rubbing/catching etc. the best way to set the cables is this:

Wind the throttle cable adjusters right in to give you maximum slack in the cables. Set the slack in the pull cable (the go fast one) by winding that cable adjuster out to the amount of slack you prefer and nip up the lock nut.. Then wind the push (slow down cable) out a bit at a time, snapping the throttle as you go. You will reach a point where the throttle will not snap back smoothly or all the way. Wind the adjuster back in until it snaps shut, give it an extra 1/4-1/2 turn in and tighten the locknut. Also as you do this check it snaps back on full handlebar lock side to side.

Cheers

Deano
