Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector
10. Multi carburetors not in sync.

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: Gilera Nordwest Carb setting

Hi,
I have a gilera RC 600 which has the same engine as the nordwest, the problem could be the carb needs to be stripped and cleaned and replace the foam air filter with a paper one. For accurate advice and spares which are quickly posted, contact BOB WRIGHT at 0044193451033. He is the official UK gilera specialist, tell him I sent you, say the guy in southern Ireland, and he will look after you. Good Luck.

It sounds like you may have or will be jetting your carbs. I did this using the directions with the kit and used the Clyman manual for this bike to show me step by step how to remove the carborator. You will only need to attach 2 of the 4 hoses on your carb. syncronizer. If I remember right, you need to remove the bolt-on cooling fins to expose the engine block. The is a black screw or bolt that you take out and screw the threaded metal adapter of the sync tool. Be careful using the sync tool. Be very light on the throttle or the vacuum in the cylinder will **** in the mercury from the sync tool - not good. The problem you are stating on idle & backing off sometimes happens when the carbs are running rich (too much fuel) Hope that gets you in the right direction.

Stock size for the slow jet is 35. Some guys put in 38's to make them less prone to getting plugged. I would say that you still have gunk in the slow jets. Also turn the pilot screws out 2 1/4turns. If the exhaust pops and you have no exhaust or vacuum leaks turn the pilot screws in 1/4 turn at a time till it goes away.

Did you change the plugs and the air filter? How about checking and or replacing the vacuum lines?

You might try a full bottle of Techron fuel system cleaner in a tank of gas. It may clear the problem up.

I had to clean the jets on my 1999 I/S twice and it's not a fun job.

Hope this helps.

06 v-star 1100 when twisting throttle and then back to idle position it takes a while to idle back down or stays at high rpm


More than likely the carbs are plugged up(makes the no idle, popping from the intake or pipe and sometimes hard starting), and/or a vacuum line(s) Is loose/broken, and the carbs are probably out of sync (makes the high sticking idle/little to no idle). I have many article written about cleaning the carbs and fuel system. Get the carbs and fuel system cleaned out if you are not familiar with the process.

V Star 1100 - after cruise speeds engine rpm very slow to retun to idle after letting off throttle.


Check to be sure the cables are not binding.
LUBE those cables!

You can buy a device that is simple and not expensive to lube the cables.
My V Star-1100 custom did exactly the same thing after about 4 years.
Seems the standard service package does not include lubing the cables!

After a generous lube the throttle cables and sticking slow return vanished.
Pleasant surprise how easy the throttle and clutch cables worked too!

Good luck!
