Post Unexplained throttle behaviour during crash
As most of you know, I had a pretty unfortunate off on the weekend. During the crash I caused myself a fairly significant injury when I landed on the rear wheel of the bike at full throttle. I thought that I must have panicked and grabbed a handful of throttle but after reviewing the video footage I realized that my hand was no where near the throttle at the time, and nor was there anything that could have interfered with it. As far as I can figure, the bike revved itself up, what do you think? This really concerns me because my injury would have been no where near as serious if the rear wheel was only spinning at idle speed. What if this happens again while I'm riding down a steep hill or something? What do you think I should do? Do I send this video to Husqvarna and start demanding answers or do you think I'm missing something?

Dan is most likely onto it, perhaps the cables got caught up. Start the bike in Neutral and check routing lock to lock.

Failing that I'd politely call the dealer and ask if there is a known fault. Being nice will get you a lot further than "demanding" answers mate. Im interested to hear the outcome.

Post some pics of your bruises :)

saff undo the cover where the throttle cables enter the side of the injector controls and make sure both are seated in there channels on the disc . check and see for any foreign objects there as well. I not sure if theres a spring there as well

the cables cant loosebn from the throttle body like the ktm there is a twin cable set up

The 13 model two strokes had a recall on a faulty throttle housing that caused throttles to stick.
The 4 strokes may have a different housing dontknow

I wasn,t happy with how the throttle cable was routed on my 125 & rerouted it to get a bit more slack
in it.
