    Question Sticky throttle after crashing in the dirt

    My niece crashed her Kawi KLX 140 and now the throttle sticks. Any suggestions on how to get her back to normal?

    I would think to look for dirt and stuff under throttle grip or cables, same in throttle cable, something slightly bent in throttle, where cable runs through and carb. That is jus for starters.

    “I guess it's because we all want to believe that what we do is very important, that people hang on to our every word, that they care what we think. The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone - anyone - feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you've let into your life.”— J.D.

    Grip or tube may be catching on the the end of the bar.
    Check throttle cable for kinks and make sure it is fully in place and seated
