I started the bike and was at full throttle when running but throttle was not sticking maybe floats stuck,so i took carb off cleaned it and put it back on know bike won't start at all ,i have spark going...


Are you certain the throttle butterfly or slide (depending on what model bike you have) is seated...if the actual throttle in the carb throat is not closing, starting bike cold will be very difficult as you are feeding in too much air.

Too much slack in the throttle on my 2005 softail duece (fuel injected)


Ok, I'm not very familiar with fuel injected models because I don't work on them but they should have a throttle cable like anything else. In the cable somewhere (usually close to the throttle grip) it has an adjuster. There should be two cables, a throttle cable and an idle cable. The throttle cable is the cable towards the front of the bike at the throttle mechanism as it pulls the throttle open. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable to take most but not all the slack out of the cable. You must have a bit of slack in each cable for the throttle to work freely. Do the same with the idle cable nearest the rear of the bike.
Once finished, with the engine off, twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position and release it. It should snap shut. If it doesn't it's not adjusted correctly. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable until the throttle operates properly. You must get this right.

Failure to properly adjust the throttle cables could result in the loss of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death. If you are not sure of how to do this, find someone who knows how to do it. You don't want your throttle sticking on you.

Good Luck

How do you adjust the throttle & idle cables on a 2009 sportser


Each cable has an adjuster near the throttle grip. They may be covered by a rubber boot. Slide the boot up so you have access to the adjusters. Loosen the lock nut on each cable. Now, adjust the throttle cable first. You want a little freeplay in the throttle grip when you start to turn it. Once you get it adjusted to that point, lock the lock nut. Then adjust the idle cable until it stops and back off just a bit. Lock the lock nut.

Now, with the engine OFF, twist the throttle to the wide open position and let go of it. It should 'snap" back to the closed position. If not, you may have the throttle cables adjusted too tightly. Back both of them off just a bit and retry. You want the throttle to "snap" shut on your bike. If not, it could cause you serious injury or death. If you're not certain of what you're doing, find someone that is experienced at doing this. You don't want your throttle sticking on your bike. This could be dangerous.

Good Luck

I have a cpi formla r 50cc. I went to stop by letting the throttle go and braking, but the bike carried on going untill i bracked really hard. even tho the throttle was in its original place the enigine is...


Find where the throttle cable connects to the butterfly valve on your carb. Twist the throttle and see if the butterfly valve is sticking open. Your cable or the valve itself might be stuck, and needs lubed. The sell tools to shoot compressed oil into the throttle cable sleve, or start cleaning / oiling hte carb depending on what you determine is sticking.

2003 F.I. Softail


Sounds like a mapping issue with whatever f.i. add on you have. could also be the pintle sticking on the throttle body. take the air cleaner off, look at the inside of the throttle body. at the top there will be a little hole. that's where the pintle is. it retracts and expands for cold starting and hot idle as well. if you turn the bike on and off it should cycle. ( extend and retract ) if it doesn't then the pintle needs to be replaced.
