My first thought is that the throttle cable(s) is sticking; however, the throttle seems to snap back quickly into the closed position.

Any thoughts on what's causing it and how to fix it?

Thanx in advance!

You may be having a coasting richener problem, do you have a Clymer manual? Is your choke all the way off? Check your choke cable at the carb. and make sure it is in it's socket and there in no tension on the cable in the off position.
