Its worth checking the tension on the carbie lock wire occasionally. I wired it up a couple of years ago and had it come loose last ride.

Grab your throttle cable where it enters the top of the carb and see if it pulls out. Not sure about the other end, same I suppose.

Mate with a 17 300exc was having issues with the throttle hanging open the other month. Pretty sure when we looked at it it could pull out from the throttle housing easily. He didn't think it was the issue at the time as he could feel the slide bottom when he closed the throttle, but later in the ride addressed issues with the cable causing hanging.
