XR50 Idles like I'm pulling on the gas

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I had the carb apart while I was fixing a fuel leak. The fuel was running over because the float mechanism in the bowl was sticking because of some debris in the gas pin hole where the fuel comes out to the carb. Anyways, I was able to get majority of the debris to where it's not overflowing anymore. However, now my bike is idling like I have the gas about half way turned. I tried messing with the fuel, air and idle screws but that did nothing. Do you guys have any ideas? :cry:

Try the easy stuff first. Check tension in throttle cable at all steering angles. Make sure throttle sleeve slides easy and returns to all the way back. Then get back into the carb and check your work again. Good Luck, let us know. :cry:

Make sure the cable end going into the carb cap is seated properly in the cap. Sometimes, the cable end gets hung up on the lip of the carb cap, pulling the throttle slide up.
