Hey yall, I have a 01 fxsti , when I went for a ride today I noticed that when at cruising speed when I let go of the throttle it didnt spring back. It was like cruise control. I feel this is very unsafe. Any ideas what could cause this. Seems to work fine if I twist the throttle back and forth.

Lube cables, and check that there is a bit of freeplay in the cables. If you take out all the freeplay, you'll have this problem. You'll notice this more turned full right.

Hey thanks for the help. Got home from work tonight and checked the throttle. I didnt even know there was a friction knob under the hand grip. Gave it alittle turn to loosen it up and wallah good to go. You guys rock. Maybe someday I can be as smart as u .
