Throttle lever on carberator won't spring fully back

I have disconnected both the accelerator and deceleration cables from the carb. Even so, the throttle lever on the carb will only return about 2/3 the it's distance and stop. I can easily push it the remains 1/3 with my finger feeling no resistance. I think the spring on the throttle lever is the only force pushing it back. Is it possible that this spring has become weak or is there something else I should look at? If it is the spring can it be replaced without pulling the carbs off the bike?

Sounds like the return spring has slipped out of place. They usually have a spot for the end tang to fit in a slot or against the carb body so it can have tension all the way back to idle.

Is it possible that you transposed the two places of where the throttle cables go? Putting the deceleration in the slot closer to the outside of the bike might be enough to cause this problem. I might not know what I am talking about but I currently am having difficulty getting my deceleration cable in after carb reinstall. Let me know if this info helps. Throttle should be in front and deceleration should be in back.

You missed the part where he has both cables disconnected from the carb.
