Default Throttle Stuck?

I'm having an issue with a throttle that seems to be sticking on the 84 750cc. I don't suspect it to be the cable since the throttle springs back good when at idle, but it happens more or less when shifting ... let go of the throttle, pull in your clutch to shift, and rpms suddenly jump to 8000-9000rpm and hold for a few seconds. Makes the bike virtually unrideable. Any ideas?

Not sure what you mean by springs back at idle. I don't know this bike at all but check for free movement in the cables, the grip, and at the carbs. Maybe disconnect the cables, check the grip, and lube cables. Then check and lube the linkage and butterflies on the carbs. I'm sure someone else should be able to help more than that.

Why would you let go of the throttle when you shift???
Something doesn't make sense here....

Let go, as in, removing the hand from the grip or releasing to drop rpm to shift? Dumb-sounding question.

I guess what i said at first didn't make much sense. By spring back at idle, I mean the throttle doesn't stick when the bikes not moving.

while riding, the RPMs shoot way up to 9000rpm when shifting gears.
