so i picked up an 02 426 a while ago and have been working on sorting out all the problems the PO created lol. so the bike starts and runs farely well but has a hard time idleing, i have to turn the idle speed knob way up to keep it running for about 20 minutes then i can turn it down and it will hold a low rpms. now we come to driving, starting with this low idle i can snap the throttle and the rpms spike and then come down to a much higher rpm then adjusted to, the only way i have been able to stop it is to adjust the idle speed knob down to were it wants to stall and then back to the lower rpm setting. i have the carb out atm and have checked the vacuum plate on the throttle valve and the oring is good the plate has no cracks and isnt missing pieces, but the hole was at the top ( was under the impression that it was to be at the bottom).??.
also i took the intake joint off that encloses the 2 air jets and the oring there was in about 10 pieces and had rtv all over the joint. i cannot find this oring on any parts diagram or in my manual my manual doesnt mention it but shows it in diagrams and the diagrams on TT and rockymountain dont show the intake boot at all.
