    sorry no pics, but undo the (left)high/low beam switch casing and drop a bit of light weight lube down into the fast idle lever cable. Move the lever back and forth to work in the lube and give it another shot. Do this several times until the cable loosens up.

    You have to lift the tank, and remove the airbox to get at the other end of the cable, but it is a good idea to hit the other end of the cable with some lube too. Careful at this end as the linkages for the throttle bodies can use some lube, but not too much as it attracts dirt build up.

    Geez my bike sounds funny now
