There are quite a few posts on the net about KTM throttles sticking.
Something to do with the cable jumping out.
Could happen to any 2 stroke that uses a Keihin carb. Which is 95% of bikes.
I wouldn't be blaming TM for that.
Could have been incorrect cable routing. Who knows.
not a hard fix to stop it from happening. I noticed this hazard the first time I pulled my first PWK carb apart. so when I put it back together I did the following:
There is a rubber sheath on most PWKs where the cable enters the carb.
I firmly zip tied the top of the rubber sheath to the throttle cable cable
and tightly zip tied the bottom of the sheath to the top of the carb (the brass spigot I guess you'd call it?).
This firmy keeps the cable where it should be.
Then I zip tied my throttle cable exactly how I wanted it so it wouldnt get pinched by my tank etc.
15minute job including stripping the bike down etc, and could save your life
if you dont have the rubber sheath just get some hose and some small hose clamp, but be carefull not to clamp the throttle cable via over-tightening.
