At the end of a charity ride (The Policemans memorial ride to remember in southern New Jersey) While backing in to park, I turned full right after advancing the throttle the throttle stuck in that position, I lost my grip on the clutch the bike lurched forward and over she went. Luckily there were four rather large riders who caught me before much damage was done. Loosened the left rearview and bent the shift arm. didn't get hurt, only a sore left thigh. Still I am not very happy about this throttle problem it only happened in a full right turn.
Any suggestions as to why this happenned?

Yeah! Check to see if ya have any play in the cable. You should be able to move the bar left,and right without any rpm change. :bigthumbsup:

to solve the throttle problem

don't know why but when suzuki attached the throttle cables with the o-ring and a tie strap below the risers they put it in the wrong place. cut the tie strap and move the o-ring to the right and attach it to the brake hose near the right fork tube(about 3 inches) your calbes will not pull over top of the risers and get so tight. you'll have no more trouble.

Sorry to hear about you tipping over your bike...

Once I forgot to unlock the neck of my sabre and I started rolling... Let's just say I have not been more glad of having crash bars... Maybe you need to onsider some for your M109R...

Throttle problem? Maybe you should blame the gas station where you filled your tank. Afterall, without gas in the tank none of this would have happened. Also, it's a lot safer backing up your bike when it's not in gear. Be more careful next time. Glad you weren't hurt.

keep it in neutral when you park . also some times when i park this bike backing it up on a slight hill is hard because it is heavy .so i will get off the bike and push it back don't care what people think. better then dropping it

Drop the trans. in neutral and kill the engine. No chance of throttle influence. I'd check the cable routing just to be sure.

Thanks everyone for all the info i will follow everyones suggestions I sure am glad I joined this group I can't believe after dropping my ride the only damage was a loose left mirror and a slightly bent shift arm. that I was able to straighten. I guess I just panicked and my hand slipped off the clutch at two grand in first,no physical damage just hurt my pride.

Hate to hear about this happening to you guys.. especially when it results in damage (which I think is probably always). This is something I'm SUPER paranoid about myself and I get a puckered sphinctre every time I see someone even walk past my bike when its parked. Got the shivers right now as a matter of fact... oh.. never mind, thats the ceiling fan :D

Hi LONGRIDER i checked the cables, and with the handlebars straight ahead the cables are just to the left of the right rizer when i turn to the right the cables tighten up hang up on the rizer. if I hold them to the right it seems to be ok, the problem is if you advance the throttle before you turn right it will not return to idle when you release the throttle and at the same time i lost my grip on the clutch, the result the dreaded drop
should I reposistion the cables to the right of the rizer?

Hi Nope mine stays at idle with the bars at full left/right. Throttled up and moving to full lock left/right - returns to idle. also, there was mention of an o-ring and tie-wraps, my throttle cable and some other cable (Probably the brake cable) have one tiewrap an inch or so away from the grip. I guess mine don't bind. So far it is OK. JOHN
