Hi there,
I wrote in a while back about trying to sort out a choke problem. It felt like the choke was snapped and wouldn't allow for any play. Based on advice I got, I tried to play around with the choke cable, which seemed to move the lever a bit, but it still doesn't seem to spring back like it seems that it should. I also played around with the throttle to no avail. The bike starts, sounds great, but idles at around 4000-4500 rpm. Any other things I should check besides the two adjustment nuts on the choke and throttle?

Is the choke cam at the carbs end siezed? That is the first thing I'd look at.
