Robert is correct - the Hummer/165 of these years are totally manual - you twist it on and it stays on just where you set it. You want it to slow down, twist the throttle the other way. NO spring-back.

Harley big twin and K/Sportster bikes of the same years are the same. I'm not sure if I'm historically correct, but I think the "spring-back" throttles started with the "Limey" (British) bikes of the mid 1950's.

All Hummer-series bikes through 1966 are manual control.


these don't go to zero like a dirt bike, kinda like cruise control. this is pre-osha engineering. you open the throttle, you close it

I just put my throttle together. On my project 55st. New
cables and newly rebuilt carb. I greases all the moving parts
at the handlebars before putting it back together. The
throttle sticks. It won't spring back to no gas when I let
go. Any suggestions?
