05 450r carb slide

After cleaning my carb i noticed that the slide is not fully closed. It's up at 1/4 in the carb. Is this normal?


Check to see the cable pulley is resting against the idle stop screw it. If it is, you need to adjust it.


1/4 raised up does not sound normal, however.

It was resting there. I adjusted that previously. There doesn't seem to be anything hindering the slide.

There is a bracket that is preventing the slide from completing releasing. It is connected to the screw in the photo that I believe goes to the accelerator pump.ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1379881609.078482.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1379881624.613291.jpg
