    96 GSX Throttle Cable Stuck

    Hey guys, my friends ski was in storage for about a year. Today we took it out, put in fresh gas, plugs, and a fresh battery. After a few seconds, it cranked up fine.. but it seems the throttle cable is stuck at full throttle?

    I can move the throttle, but it is very loose and when i let go, it goes to almost full throttle. Im thinkin the cable is just snagged somewhere? How do i get that stupid black airbox off?

    You should be able to reach in behind without taking the airbox off. Get a mirror and flashlight to see where you need to go. To take off the airbox, slide the 6 tabs and then seperate. Then there are some bolts holding it to the carbs.
