SOURCE: I replaced fuel and carb

It is quite difficult to explain exactly how it fits, the cable always looks too long and has to curl around on itself back to the trigger, the picture shows quite well how it goes, the end of the cable with a dog leg in it goes to the carb, as far as i remember it goes to the upper hole in the carb spindle, just push it into the hole and turn through 90%, the other end fits into the throttle trigger.adw1_9.jpg

Runs wide open all the time. Check the throttle cable it's ok.


Check the throttle cable linkage where it connects to the carb.
Also check to see if there is a spring that is not connected in the carb linkage.

How do i disconnect the throttle cable from the carburetor so that I can take out the carburetor and clean it.


the throttle cable DOES NOT attach to the carb on that engine. It attaches to the control panel underneath the carb. you have linkage rods that connect and they either have clips or you need to pull the carb mounting studs

Craftsman schematic


Most are pretty simple the carb linkage should have a small moon shaped disc with three or four small adjustment holes for the bent tip of the throttle cable. After attaching the cable to the handle and snaking it to the carb. There is a small clamp that will hold the cable in the adjusted position .slide the end under the clamp and then connect to one of the holes on the linkage..slightly tighten the clamp and slowly move the handle unti the handle goes the full travel..then check to see it the carb linkage goes to full throttle and backs off to idle..if it does not..loosen the clamp and keep adjusting to get the desired full throttle and idle..May have to play with it a couple of times but it will adjust..good luck..

I replaced fuel and carb lines on my Poulan 2450 chain saw. I cannot seem to find the correct path/attachment for the throttle connection. Parts diagrams do not show this. Can someone provide a diagram...

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.

1981 Yamaha MX upper replacement throttle cable.


Yes, take the cap off the carb and disconnect the cable then do the oil pump cable. The connector tube should then come apart for upper cable replacement. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

When i press the throttle handle the flap does not moveon carbeuter


Hi there,

The throttle cable is either broken or disconnected at one of the ends.

I don't know your model, so I'm going by what most Homelites have in common.

I'd start by seeing if you can get a clear view of the carb where the cable connects. If you can't, start with the easier of the two areas. Dismantle the housing around the throttle handle. Most Homelites use Torx-25 screws, so you'll need some Torx bits.

You want to make sure the cable is connected to the throttle handle and the sleeve is secured so it doesn't move.

Same deal at the carb end.

If they both are connected and pulling the throttle has no effect on the carb, the cable has a break and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps
Mike

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.

Whats the best and easiest way to set the carbs on a 1990 yamaha radian yx600


Your problem is probably the sycronizing as long as you havent messed with the fuel screw or jetting. If you dont have a set of vacuum guages you can eyeball the slides in the carbs to at least get you by and you can usually get them pretty close. Find the carb that is directly linked to the cable. the other carbs are adjustable to that carb so you need to make all the other carbs identical to that one. Look at the gap from the bottom of the slide to the bottom of the bore of the carb on that base carb with the throttle at idle bike not running. With the adjustments on the linkage to the other carbs adjust the other slides to the same height as that base carb as close as you can. Measure if possible to get all the carbs as close as possible to each other. you may have to adjust the idle after. If the adjustments on the carbs are all cables, for example there is a cable to each carb directly connected to the slide just adjust each cable accordingly and achieve the same as above. make sure you have a little freeplay at the throttle when you are done. you can adjust that by the cable adjustment by the throttle which will keep all the carbs in sync

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.
