2001 yamaha ttr 125 when started it runs at full throttle without me touching the throttle

I would check the throttle adjustment screw on the throttle assembly on handle bars. Be sure it is not screwed all the way in for max throttle. You can also check the carb and be sure that the idle screw is not adjusted for high idle as well. There may be an adjustment screw on carb for the cable stop.

I have a 1999 kawasaki zx6 and i need to get new carbs because the throtle sticks . I need to know what carbs will bolt directly in?

z_dogg, you do not need new carbs. Several issues may cause throttle sticking, and all of them are cheaper than a new set of carbs. Introducing a used set of carbs just introduces a new unknown set of potential issues.
This approach moves from easiest to most involved solution.
First, take apart the throttle at the handlebar. Clean the throttle tube, the part you twist to accelerate, and lubricate the throttle tube and throttle cable with penetrating oil like WD40. To get the lube into the cable I use a finger from a rubber glove with a small hole in the tip, slip it over the cable end and fill it with lube, then let it seep down into the cable. Best results ever. Re-assemble this end and test your results.
Second, if it is still sticking, check the cable routing. Often the cables get bent or twisted and cause binding that prevents free release. Make sure the cables are routed with no sharp bends, and the largest curves possible.
Third, disconnect the cable from the carbs and move the throttle linkage itself. If it snaps back into place, it is the cable not the carbs. If it does not snap back, lube the linkage at each carburetor while moving it and see if it frees up.
Fourth, if it still sticks, you will need to pull the carbs and clean them thoroughly inside. It may be the vacuum slides that are sticking open and keeping it from slowing down. It would be best to invest in a manual to guide you through this process. It can be done with a few cans of carb cleaner and careful handling of the parts.
All the best in your repairs!

How to change out a choke cable on 2001 barley fxd

To change the choke cable, you must take the carb off the engine. Remove the air filter and backing plate. Take the nut off the backside of the choke cable and let the cable come out of the bracket that holds it. Make sure the petcock is turned off and disconnect the fuel hose at the carb. Loosen the throttle and idle cable at the handlebar throttle assembly. Pull the carb out of the intake manifold seal. Work the throttle and idle cables out of their positions in the carb. Bring the carb with the choke cable out and away from the engine. Take the choke cable out of the carb with a 14mm open end wrench. Take the plunger and spring off the old cable and swap it to the new cable and reinstall the choke cable. Put the throttle and idle cables back onto the carb, put a new intake manifold seal on the intake manifold and push the carburetor back into the new seal. Put the choke cable in it's bracket and secure the nut. Be careful and do not over tighten the nut as the plastic cable housing will break. Reconnect the fuel line, the vacuum line, and anything else that was taken off. Replace the air filter backing plate and the air cleaner. Readjust the throttle and idle cables making sure that the throttle operates freely and returns when let go on it's own. Never put any kind of lubricant on the choke cable. There is a knurled wheel that you can use to tighten the cable so that it stays where you put it.

Fuel enrichment knob broke i have new cable but manuel does not explain procedure

To replace the enricher cable on the stock Kiehen CV carb, you must remove the carb from the engine.

Remove the air cleaner cover, air filter, and backing plate. To get the backing plate off, you must remove the two large union bolts that go to the heads on either side of the ari filter backing plate and the three smaller bolts at the mouth of the carb. Loosen the adjustment of the throttle cables at the handlebar throttle grip. Take the nut off the backside of the enricher cable and it fall loose from it's bracket. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb, make sure the petcocik is turned off. Now, twist the carb slightly and pull until it comes out. Make sure you guide the enricher cable out. Once you get the carb out far enough, remvove the throttle and the idle cable from the carb and bring the carb on away from the engine. Now, use a 14 mm wrench to unscrew the enrcher cable from the carb. You'll have to change the elbow, nut, spring, and needle from the old cable to the new cable and reinstall it on the carb.

To replace the carb, guide the enricher cable back between the cylinders. Reconnect the throttle and idle cables on the carb. Replace the intake manifold seal (round rubber boot on the intake manifold) and lubricate it with a bit of silicone spray or something. Push the carb as far as you can into the seal. Reconnect the fuel line and adjust the throttle cables. Make sure you don't get them too tight and that the throttle works like it should. Replace the air filter backing plate, air filter, and air filter cover. Put the enricher cable up into it's bracket and tighten the nut on the backside. Be very careful tightening the nut as the plastic housing breaks easily. Tighten the nut just tight enough to securely hold the cable. Check the operation of the carb and make sure it operates smoothly and correctly. Now, you should be ready to ride.

Good Luck

I need step by step instructions on how to replace the throttle cable on a 1980 harley sportster

Ok, you should have two cables on your Sportster. One is the throttle cable that pulls the carb open and the other is the idle cable that acts as "safety cable" to pull the carb closed should the throttle return spring on the carb break.

To replace either or both of the cables, it will be easier to remove the fuel tank before doing so. Make sure you look at how the cable are routed from your handlebar grip to the carb. Drain the fuel and take the tank off your bike.

Now, first loosen the cable adjusters so that you have all the slack you can get in the cables. Take the two bolts out that hold the right hand switch housing halves together. Carefully lift the top half off exposing the nylon throttle sleeve. The cables are connect so that the throttle cable is to the front and the idle cable is to the rear. Work one cable at a time out of the sleeve. Be careful and do not loose the "barrel" that goes on each cable. With the cables out of the throttle sleeve, you can pull them down through the throttle housing. Then, disconnect the cables at the carb.

To reinstall the cables, do everything in reverse. Make sure you pull the throttle grip off the handlebars and apply a bit of white lithium grease to the handlebar, inside the throttle grip, and on the nylon throttle sleeve where the cables connect. Get everything assembled but just before you tighten the bolts that hold the switch housings together, slide the throttle assembly towards the center of the handlebars until it stops, then back if off about a 1/4 or 3/8 inch. Do not adjust the throttle or idle cables too tightly, you need just a bit of slack in each one or the throttle will hang. When you think you're finished, with the engine off, turn the throttle to the wide open position and release it. It should snap back to the fully closed position. If not, work with it until you get it where it does. Reinstall the fuel tank.

Caution, failure to insure proper throttle operation could cause serious injury or death. Do the job right or take it to someone that can. Your health or your life ain't worth risking for the few bucks you save.

Carb and throttle adj.

Here is how to do it. First disconnect the throttle cable to the carb and let it hang loose. Make sure the outdrive is in neutral and the boat is secured to the dock or on a trailer with a water ****.

Pull back on the throttle by hand directly on the carb throttle shaft. Observe the Choke cam on the opposite side of the Carb. Let go of the Carb throttle shaft and see where the Stepup Cam is set. The Choke plate should be closed most of the way. You will not have very much time to make an adjustment.

Start the engine and let the Choke work and observe the RPM. There are usually adjustments you can make to put the Stepup Cam on a lower step by bending the Link Rod if it is running too high in Choke. Sometimes the Cam is left alone and a screw similar to the Curb Idle screw on the Throttle side just needs reduction to ride lower on the Choke Cam.

After the Choke is warm, it disengages with a pull on the Throttle. Now you are using the Throttle side of the Carb to operate the engine RPM. You want a low RPM for sake of the outdrive gears and NO WAKE zone. The adjustment screw opens the Throttle shaft, You set it for the Manufacturers Spec. probably 550 RPM.

The Throttle cable is now adjusted so it pushes slightly against the Carb. This forces the throttle closed. The Throttle cable has threads and a sort of Knurled knob which runs on these threads. This device is used to lengthen or shorten the cable so that pressure is applied against the Throttle.

When the outdrive is in water you will has resistence on the Exhaust. This will slow the RPM. If the motor stalls you will need to adjust the motor to idle Specs while in the water.

For best economy, find a Vacuum port and attach a Vacuum guage to it and adjust the air mix to the highest Vacuum reading then turn in the Mixture screws slightly until the vacuum starts to drop.

Idles at full throttle

Be sure the throttle cable is routed correctly and is not being stretched. When disconnected from the carb, does the inner throttle cable operate freely? Lubricate it. Also check that the cable connections at throttle and carb are seated properly. Does the slide move up and down freely? Remove the air filter and twist the throttle while looking inside the throat of the carb. LIGHTLY seat the throttle screw and the air screw then open each of them one and one half turns outward.
