03 xr100 throttle sticking

Recommended Posts

alright so hears the problem. i just clean out my carb. all the jets and such because the bike would not idle with the choke down. i read to put the throttle needle thing up. so i richened it. (ring down needle up) and now it idles great. but when im riding the engine wont slow down. i can even start without using any throttle sometimes.

mods

-drilled holes in air box

- new uni filter

I'm not sure what size stock is but go 1 or 2 sizes bigger.

When i did air box mods and UNI filter on my XR80, the stock main is 95 and i could have gotten a 98 or 100. I got the 100 and it runs great!

The pilot jet is what affects idling not the main jet. Try going up one size on the pilot jet.

Just a thought from reading your heading. Is the throttle sticking? Like maybe the slide went in the carb backwards after reassembly? You would feel it in your right hand if it doesn't feel smooth when you roll off.
