Throttle Valve Problem
Posted June 04, 2005 - 03:52 PM
[COLOR=Magenta]Solution: Turning the throttle enough to free up the "push rod link lever assembly," then pushing the lever, frees up the throttle valve. The valve may not drop, however, if the jet needle is not aligned properly. Finally, the throttle valve lever rollers need to be aligned with the slits in the throttle valve, which is as straigtforward as it sounds. My thanks to PNWWR400 for coaching me through this process.

I believe what did was : on the side where the throttle cables ends attach to the wheel is a arm(below the wheel) that you can raise/release with your finger or a screwdriver. This should release the slide which should go down. Now when i change jets i make sure i only raise it 1/2 way and use needle noses to get the jet needle out. I think i had the carb off the bike when i discovered this. If you still have trouble e-mail me, i give you my #

Thanks a lot for the advice regarding what appears in my manual to be the "push rod link lever assembly." I'll give it a push later this morning and see if that does the trick.
Note Indy's comment above. I think that the problem occurred because there was no throttle stop. Did you install one on your bike after you discovered that it was missing?
