I just picked up a 2007 CRF50 from someone. The bike is all stock except for a tall seat, higher bar mounts/bars, and a Red Barron throttle assembly/tube. The owner said it had just been sitting in the garage for the past 18 months and no longer runs. He also mentioned that it might need a new throttle assembly. As he was not mechanically inclined so thought that this all meant that the carb was gummed up and simply needed a good cleaning. Upon inspecting it, the throttle was completely frozen. This was because when he routed the throttle cable it was binding against the frame. Quick fix, reroute the cable. I also dissembled the carb and cleaned it all out, as well as the gas tank. Removed, float, needle, main jet, idle screw, and air/fuel screw. Cleaned everything with carb cleaner and resembled. Now here comes the problem(s). I only have an 1/8th of a turn of throttle. I don't know 50s, but I would think it should have more than that. I've adjusted the throttle cable as much as possible with little effect. It looks like the cable is simply too short. This is what it looks like at the end that goes into the carb... not normal? The other issue is that it will not want to run with the throttle on. I can it it to idle...barely. But when you hold the throttle open it will maybe increase to about 2500rpm for a few seconds and then want to die. I am thinking it could be a float issue? I've gone through the carb twice. Removed the air filter and then the exhaust thinking it might not be getting enough air or a back pressure issue, but no change what so ever. Anything else to check or ideas? (thank god these things are easy to work on compared to a 250F ) Thanks!
