What causes the throttle to stick on high on the ltx1040

First thing to check is to be sure the throttle plate is still attached to the throttle lever on the carburetor! If you can control the speed at the carburetor by hand, feel the governor linkage , does it have push/ pull feel to it? If no action from the governor, the inner parts of the governor are broken.
