RACETECH :

Will the throttle grip move at all ? If so , then the cable is either came loose or broken. If it will not move then you/ll need to trace the cable back to the carb and see what is happening. The carburetor is under the seat and can be accessed with the seat lifted and then the inspection plate removed. Then you can manually twist the throttle plate on the carburetor to check for correct operation.

RACETECH :

Let me know what you find.
