My throttle cable is froze right now. Parked my unit in the barn. Been starting every day for a bit. So cold northern Indiana. Went to start it and cable is froze. Accelerator stuck. Looked and cable is frozen. Have not driven in any water in months. So really not sure why but will wait for it to thaw. Traced all the way back. Does not seem hard to change of I need to. But hopefully a warm up will do the trick. We will see
Mine started seizing up right after I did the trip to the beach at Crystal Beach last May. On occasion when I first get in to fire it up it will be stuck and drag. I've removed the cable at both ends and worked lube along the cable and freed it up but only for short stints and I've had to remove and do again. I purchased a motorcycle cable injector from (of course you guest it) Ebay so I can force lubricant thru the whole cable. I think after lubing with the injector it should cure the problem for much longer periods of time. Let me know how yours comes out if you do the lube route.
Call around in your area as some motorcycle shops can repair broken cables for a little of nothing. Note to self: Never get these things in salt water. I didn't even drive mine in the water and I've got problems from just being their for two days and that night it rained on mine.
Two Wheel World in Pantego Tx can repair any broken cable if you can get it to them. Pantego is Southwest of Arlington TX. Nice little bike shop that is independent. They have no specific line of motorcycles or atv's. The last time I had one fixed it cost $5 to put a new barrel end on my Kawasaki Vulcan cable. I'm sure if you include mail service they will ship to you after repair.
