The carburator will need to remove the seat and gas tank.The top of the carb will turn off counter clockwise, then you can pull the "slide" up out of the carburator. Note which is the front for re-assemble. There is a spring between the slide and cap, and look into the slide to see if your cable clips in, or may have a phillips screw and plate to remove to get the cable free. I use needle nose pliers to hold the spring back to remove and replace the cable.
The throttle end is easier. Remove the plastic cap and unthread the adjusting worm nut. The cable end "ball" will come out with the help of needle nose pliers also. Pull the cable slack up to rotate the "ball" out of the throttle tube.
Hope this helps!

I have a Suzuki rm 125 2005 model and ran it wide open to long and now acts like its flooded... already took Carb apart to clean figured float was stuck found a piece of dirt so I put it back together and...

Does the engine have good compression? The ring in a 125 does not last very long - the bike could be down on compression pressure. Re-ring it.

Is your air filter clean? I've seen them so filthy that they were actually brittle. Check your air filter.

How about your spark plug? They do burn out. Replace with a new one.

If it's loaded up, pull the plug, hold the throttle wide open and kick the snot out of it about 20 times, then put a fresh plug in it and try it again.

Good luck!

No clutch control,bike stays engaged in gear with clutch depressed

assuming the cable is fine and you have pressure at the lever.sometimes the plates can stick together when it sits for a while. put it in top gear 6th, put the front wheel against a wall, hold the clutch in and put some weight on the kick start. or push start it and hold the clutch in and vary the throttle to try and free the clutch

Over idling

Hey bro, throttle cable stuck, see if the carb mechanism is closed. Sometimes when you gun it it'll stick open. Get access to the carb and see if it is open or closed. If open then it is stuck, figure out if it is the cable or the carb mechanism that is caught and lube it. If the carb is closed you might have an air leak causing it to run lean but if this were the case it's rev high, but not red-line high. Cheers bro.
