    on my indy 500 sp, when i go from say 1/4 thottle and hit it, the throttle lever wont move like it is stuck or something. in other words, i press it and it wont budge unless i fully let off of the throttle and then get back on it. sometimes it does this as much as 5-10 times during a trip, and sometimes it never does it. any suggestions? i thought that maybe the throttle cables need some throttle lube but im not sure.. thanks drew

    You can try clean the the throttle slides in the carbs but chances are you need to replace the throttle cable ,it probably started to fray somewhere.

    dave36 is correct, could also be kinked. Have you tried lubing the cable at all? Use "chain and cable" lube.
