Question - I've picked up a set of throttle bodies from a '84 GPZ1100.
These particular throttle bodies are a big-bore bolt up for my
GPZ750 after swapping the TPS sensor.  Anyway, they are pretty sticky - I've 
cleaned them in gasoline for a few hours and they are significantly looser, 
but still not returning to the closed position
as promptly as I'd like.  Anyone have cleaning suggestions?  Should
I completely tear down?  Soak in carb cleaner?
