Throttle is now operable

But, I am still having the same issue where I have to manually let off the accelerator... I sprayed a crap load of
PB Blaster on the wheel on the carb, and worked the throttle a ton, but it is still doing it...

Any suggestions??

Is the return spring properly installed??? It should be between the carbs.

I lubed them using Knifemaker's recommendation. That was when I broke my throttle sleeve.

You should have a little bit of looseness to the cables to keep the sleeve from getting tight against one side.

Okay, so I need to loosed the pull cable some. From memory, that is the one furthest from you as you are sitting on the bike.
