grip stuck when i release throttle

i just put my carbs back on after cleaning them ( and everyone was right leave the boots on the head on) so after 1& 1/2 hrs and 4 beers i got it back in good to go. so after its in i realize i didnt connect the throttle cables back up now 3 beers later i got them back on but when i pull the throttle back like im giving it gas it just stays there and i get no snap back from my throttle grip so i took that apart it looked fine the wires where moving as they should but the "push" wire seemded to have a little slack in it any help or sugestions ?
thanx

Mine does the same thing. I just look at it as cruise control. I know that is slack but oh well.

Try adjusting the throttle cables. When were the cables lubricated last?

Are you sure the cables are routed the exact same way as before you worked on the carbs?

True that Flitecontrol

here is my two cents, grease the throttle cable. open and clean the housing assy control, add some grease on the throttle cable (within the housing)- enough to reduce friction between plastic.

good luck!
