well if it clearly isn't functioning fix that first.
as for holding the throttle steady & rpm's going up & down, I suspect plugs.

bear in mind, I'm not a mechanic & just work on bikes as a hobby.

even though this is a mechanical problem, maybe you could post in the general forum to see if there's anyone in your area that could help?
If you want to bring it to my house I'd help. :dunno

i can have my brother give it some gas and i can see the linkage attached to the valve try and pull it but it just isnt budging... what do u think? i appreciate your response
you can check it yourself without revving the motor.
when you turn the key to on it will cycle full open & then close again to "self test"

If you put in 4 quarts you put in to much oil. Depending on the year, but I believe 02-07 only hold 3.1 quarts with a filter change. Bear in mind this probably has nothing to do with your engine running rough, but you should get the oil level sorted out before you run it to much more.
good point! I failed to catch that.
