One msitake many people make is thinking a return spring/rubber band needs to snap the throttle closed in case the battery gets disconnected, or the switch fails or a wire breaks, etc. If it will close the throttle MOST of the way the vibration of the engine running will free everything up enuff for it to finish the job.
