prop the tank and check the routing of the lines, they can bind if routed wrong. being used it could probably stand a little look-see anyhow...

I recommend you follow your throttle cable and check everything it's hooked up to starting with the grip. Make sure everything is free and all springs are in working order. You should be able to find the culprit.

You already found that the grip is not the problem so next check the cable it could be broken or frayed inside keeping it from returning, if the cable is OK next check the throttle bodies.

Loosen off the tension on the return cable.

Make sure the grip isn't rubbing on the bar end.

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

Check the lines for kinks or bends (both throttle cables). And lube your cables. I had a similar problem with my throttle not being as smooth as I'd like (along with the clutch) so I checked the routing and lubed the cables. It makes a big difference.

I wrote it up here, if you want to get an idea of how to do it.
