Throttle hard to turn - not a cable problem


New member
Hello all,

Been a long time lurker but need some advice. I am having an issue with my throttle as it has become harder to turner. It still returns normally, not sticky and spring seem to be working fine but my wrist starts to hurt after an hour of riding and others made comments as well about the throttle.

The issue doesn't appear to be in the throttle cables as I've lubed them with a tool and took it all apart to ensure that lube traveled all the way down to where they attach to the TB. Cables move smoothly.

Have anyone encountered this and was able to resolve it?
Did a quick forum search but couldn't anything too relevant.
