Hey guys, newest problem.......



Got the ol girl runnin and drove her down the road a lil till she warmed up, then turned the choke off because the idle was up and noticed that with the choke off the idle was still around 3k rpm and wouldn't come down!!!



So i tried turning the idle screw to lower the idle, because the PO said he turned it up and it didn't do any good.



She needs a lil choke to run for the first time in a day but then when she is warm i can turn it off but the rpms wont go down when she's warm.



Any suggestions?

Look at the choke linkage as you operate the choke to see if it moves like it should and there is a little slack in the cable with the choke off. Then check if the idle screw rests against the stop, if not make sure there is slack in the throttle cables. If all that is good synch the carbs.

I wonder if the po messed with the carb sinc screws, and has at least 1 set wrong. My 2 cents.,,

unless you know all the history of this bike, I would start by disconecting the cables and then make all the proper adjustments to the carbs. after you know the carbs are right then connect the cables and go from there.

Just what I would do.

If you can't afford to do it right the first time,
You sure can't afford to do it the second time.

checked throttle push cable and choke cables...
they all seem to be in good order and working as they should.

However....i did notice that the air filter is missing a baseball sized piece of material where the fiber is supposed to be.....

Could this be causing the high idle?

If that filter material got in the carbs and is hanging up a throttle plate it could cause that.

something is probably stuck in there. your going to have to pull the carbs and at least blow everything out with some air.
what year is it?
