Question about Motorcycles
Starts up fine but when you twist the throttle it takes a few seconds to accelerate but sometimes it does nothing I've checked the cable and it's functioning properly I've also cleaned the carb and checked for vacuum leaks I just can't seem to figure out what's going on.....

after a couple of years w/ more than likely fuel left in it all along, it now needs a carb cleaning.if you can smell that old turned to varnish smell, its time for a carb job. check for fire first, and compession(should blow your thumb off the hole)put fresh plug, check air cleaner,and flush fuel tank

If I understand your problem correctly this may help. There should be a spring just a bit smaller diameter than the slide that mounts between the top of the slide and the bottom of the carb cap. No spring means no snap-back. I am assuming there are no kinks in the cable and the cable was routed correctly when installed. Lots of times if the cable is not routed properly the gas tank will "stretch" the cable when the tank is re-mounted. Route the cable properly and the problem goes away..... As far as the slack in the cable, there is a an adjusting screw on the top of the carb (where the cable ends) and an adjuster screw at the hand throttle also where the cable ends. Some bikes have an extra adjuster mid cable but I don't think yours does, (working from memory here). If none of the above work then my guess is that the parts counter handed you the wrong part.

SOURCE: accelerator stuck open
This has happened to me before, and i know just what the problem is. Under the fuel tank, the throttle cable goes into a plastic cable housing, and sometimes the cable guard gets stuck out of the housing, causing the throttle to be constantly open. Just take off the tank, follow your throttle cable to find where it's stuck and release it.

Sounds like the jets are clogged in the carburetor. Try running some carburetor cleaner through it first. If that doesn't help then you will need to have the carburetor rebuilt. Hope this helps. Good luck.
