I Have A 04 Yz450, And If I Let It Sit For A Couple Of Days, The Throttle Gets Stuck Wide Open. I Have Tore Apart, Cleaned And Lubed. After A Couple Days It Will Do It Again. Does Anyone Have Any Suggestions?

did you check in the housing at the carb where they attach there? they may be frayed, my cables have frayed there and almost have to replace them every winter!! I have a yz400 but you might have that problem.

Ditto on the linkage in the carb, also check your free play at the grip. Too tight will prevent return, should be 3-5 mm.
