Ktm 200exc Idling really high?

Recommended Posts

So i recently smashed the cdi box on my 2004 200exc.  While waiting to replace that i cleaned out my carburetor.  And now when i start it it idles really high, almost like its wide open.  I turned the idle screw all the way down and its still really high.  The throttle also seems fine.  Not being very familiar with this, I was wondering if the new cdi could cause this or if i would have to adjust one of the jets or something else in the carb?  Thanks!

Might be air leaking around carb boot, leaning it out. Spray WD-40 around the carb & boot...see if the idle changes.

Just saw your post...I did that exact same thing too about a year ago after a carb cleaning.  Glad you figured it out.

I figured it out. Turns out it was the throttle cable. But thanks anyways!

that was going to be one of my suggestions. A word to the wise, check that cable out carefully and make sure it's working properly. A stuck throttle at the wrong time can hurt you bad trust me.
