It could be a number of things but I'd initially suggest you check the throttle cable routing? Sometimes they can get caught up under the tank and cause this sort of problem...

Hi Mark - I had a similar problem with my 850 fitted with a single Mk2 Concentric - a few things to check:-
1) If you have removed the carbs recently did you over-tighten the flange bolts - this can distort the carb body such that the slide sticks.
2) Check for inlet air leaks - this can cause all sorts of odd faults.
3) Lubricate the throttle cable (assuming that it's not nylon).
4) Check the throttle cable junction box for 'stickiness' etc.
5) Check for frayed cables.
6) As Peter states - check the cable routing for any traps/kinks/tight bends etc.
7) If all else fails you can obtain 'heavy-duty' slide springs for Amals from Burlen - these make the throttle action slightly heavier but seem to overcome many such problems.
