Not sure it's relevant if it's fly-by-wire, or wether it's a good old fashioned cable. There is still a throttle valve, which still could be cleaned. Isn't there???

There is, and there isn't. The throttle valve cant be opened unless the engine is running. I seriously doubt the engine can digest rags and cottonbuds .

To clean you could use one of the many carb/throttle body cleaning sprays that are available.
