Honda metropolitan throttle

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.....

SOURCE: replaced throttle cable on pw50 but can't seem to get it adjusted

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.

SOURCE: 1972 honda cl100 Scrambler K2 will not accelerate

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.

If the throttle cable is not attached properly to the throttle body or you have a bad motor mount, the throttle cable may be pulling the throttle open as you shift into gear. Open the hood, find the throttle cable on the throttle body. Inspect how it is connected and also how the cable is fastened in the engine comoartnent. Next, watch what happens as someone else starts the truck and puts it into gear. If the engine shifts significantly, check for broken motor mounts. If the throttle cable is misbehaving, correct the installation.

How new is the amp?

A single faulty solder can do that...I'd try returning in to the seller.
Have you tried a different amp with the same equipment?

Sounds like a wiring issue.

2002 WR250F from a rolling idle, rap the throtle once pretty good and it just bogs out. from a rolling idle gradual throtle runs fine. Idles fine now that we've cleaned the carb and got the slide plate...

Your symptom screams out that the accelerator pump isn't working.
The carbies on these bikes have an accellerator pump set-up that squirts fuel down the center of the carby throat as you hit the accelerator & your symptom is exactly what hapens when it's not working.

To test this - remove the carby & re-connet it to the fuel line(& turn the fuel on) while holding it upright next to the bikes tank(to supply fuel to the carby).
Now opperate the throttle cam(or also re-connect the cables & use the throttle).
As you go from no throttle to full throttle fuel should squrt out the front of the carby.
If it dosn't then the pump is not working & is the cause of the problem.
Rectify this & the bike will scream again.

I hope this is helpfull- check the pump & if it's working good then let me know & I'll see what I can suggest
Regards Andrew Porrelli
