Upshotknothole Posted June 24, 2022 Share Posted June 24, 2022 So I think I first noticed this a few days ago, but yesterday when doing about a 3 hour ride I really started to notice it. When shifting especially, the revs are hanging and not dropping when rolling off the throttle slightly. Usually up around 5-6K when doing "normal" city and back roads riding. If I let go of the throttle and let it snap shut, it's fine. Adjusted the throttle cable in the garage earlier and pulled the throttle apart, everything there seems normal. It's not an air leak as I've dealt with those way too many times and it returns to normal idle if I snap the throttle closed. I'll be pulling the tank off tomorrow and looking into it. Maybe a sticky throttle cable, though it doesn't feel bad. I can try lubricating it tomorrow when the tank is off. Anything else it might be? I'll check the throttle linkage too. They're CV carbs so not really sure what could cause the revs to hang. Thanks, just looking for ideas before I tear into the bike tomorrow. The bike is a full fairing 750, and there's so much factory crap under the tank, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if something was just interfering with the throttle. Quote Link to comment
