:bang: :bang: i have a pw80 thats was riding as good as always
till i came in a corner and tried to get a little drift action going around the corner and i spint out and the bike landed on me and the throttle but it was a too hard hit though but then after that it was acting funny it started to get stuck and i almost hit my garage if it wasnt for the front brakes. so thought maybe a little dirt got it the throttle tube so i took it of cleaned it and put a little oil in it and i still will not go back by it self so it checked my line for broken wires and it checked ok as far as i could see checked my slide and that was good and didnt have any scractches on it. so do you guys think that it could be that my carb needs a really goood cleaning.

Cracked throttle tube perhaps. Maybe the grip is dragging on the end of the bar. Either that or it's all gunked up from being "oiled".
