I removed my carb to clean and re-jet it this weekend. Before I removed it the throttle would snap back as it should. However, now, it's not very smooth. It still goes back to idle however it wont "snap" back...
I have checked and checked again the routing of the cables...That does not seem to be the issue...Do I need to lubricate something here?
I had an issue with my throttle not snapping back. I didn't think it was routing issue either. Bought new throttle cables and had the same problem until the throttle cables were routed through the forks. Do your throttle cables go through the forks before they go up to the handlebar?
When I removed the carb I believe I just removed the whole bracket that has the adjuster nuts on it which loosened everything up...I will try and adjust the nuts though...If it's binding I guess I need to loosen them?
If adjusting them doesn't work. Try letting some lube run down inside the cable housing & lightly lube the moving parts on the carb. Might try lubing the throttle sleeve on your bars too... just squirt some under the grip/sleeve area. May have just got some crud on things while handling them. Had to lube mine after cleaning & jetting. Don't forget the moving parts on the carb. itself. Was sticking a little on mine.
I use 30 weight oil. I take them off, hang them up and use a medicine dropper to push some in. Leave them over night so the oil works its way through the cables. have a bucket under them so you don't get any on the floor. I'm sure you could use other lube but I like the 30 weight.
