You didn't say what MODEL YEAR you're talking about, as it could make a difference!

If it's a 2008 or newer, they did away with the throttle cables on Touring models (like the Road King family) and went with Throttle-By-Wire, which uses electric sensors instead.

SOURCE: Harley runs nice in 40-50 deg. weather only

Hey Tom, gonna try and help ya here...typical vapor lock/overheating is what your describing and i sure hear a lot of it w/harleys...are you using a very high grade synthetic oil , like castrol Syntec Actevo ? are you filling up w/ premium gasoline ?
make sure your timing is not too far advanced and don;'t let it idle too low...when you come to a stoplight stand up for a strech while letting your engine get air not blocked by your legs....all these things will help greatly......Good luck to you friend...Tim

SOURCE: Honda CR125 Motocross bike throttle delay

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Now pull the top cap off the throat of the carb and remove the large slide. There will be a long needle in the center of the slide. Remove the needle and then move the clip at the top on the needle down one notch. Two notches may be required but start with one notch. Put it all back together and try it out. Moving the clip downward richens the low end fuel mix.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: racing idle

This is an air problem. You have an air leak(s) between the carb(s) and the cylinder. This leans the fuel mix and causes the racing problem. Rubber / plastic seals, "o" rings and manifold ducts get old and cracked and just don't seal well at the clamps any more.

SOURCE: hi i have a gt250r

Your problem sounds like fuel starvation for sure, You will probably find your float or float inlet needle and seat valve is sticking or the float level is set too low.in the carburator bowl. another possibility is the filter sive in the fuel on off valve is blocked, start your check there, it is an easy fix, look at the on off valve and remove the bowl on the bottom. look inside and remove the sive filter, should only take 5 nimutes to fix. make sure the fuel runs out and not just drips when the valve is open. The carbs are a little more complicated.

Backfiring and trouble starting


If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

Sakura S305 electric bike, no speed control


I'm not familiar with that make/model, but if it has a brushed motor then it is likely that you have a faulty controller module. Most brushed motors have just 2 wires running to them from the controller.

02 crf450r starts up fine.... let choke off then


I have a crf 250 R and i have learned multiple things about these bikes like if you leave it running and not riding it for about ten min. it will over heat. they love race gas 113 octane,and alot more. but your prob sounds strange. i know if you hold the hot start while its runing it pops that could be a problem. or it could be you are not cleaning the bike out i would need to know more about this to give a definate answer but try going over the bike. Look at key parts like the
carb
air cleaner
fuel line
any thing that is nesessary for the bike to run.

Save our bonneville


sounds like the throttle cables need to be looked over .( he get everything back to where it was before the lubing?)as one may be out of sync with the other. the oil change has NOTHING to do with the sputtering and surging ,stall .it would only apply if the clutch was slipping and that would make the bike rev with the car oil.

. but i don't get a pop or nothing just kicking and kicking and nothing happens any help would be appreciated. Plug has fire also but maybe some other electronics are messed up so if anyone knows how to troubleshoot electronics on this bike that would help alot.This might sound weird but did anything happen to the killswitch wire? If it got pulled on or something it could have come loose, causing it to act like it's being held down and not restart. I had this problem on my 125...put a new one in, and haven't had a problem since.,,,
