High Idle

Postby crandell » Sun Jul 15, 2012 4:13 pm



My GL1000 has a high idle problem, after it worms up the idle jumps up to 2800 rpm, if I shut it off then start it back up it stays at 1150 rpm untill I give it some gass then back up to 2800 rpm. I can do this over and over with the same results. I have reset the points and timing,and cleened up the mec. advance [that was stuck at full] and I cant find any vacume leeks.Any sujestions would be great.

make sure it is seating against the idle screw. The cable might be tight.

I agree with TheArtist, also check the cable route and be sure a throttle actuation get a snap back.

Thanks for the replys! turns out it was the choke linkage stiking,it wasent retuning all the way and the choke cable did have slack in it. She still runs a little ruff im going to pick up a carb sync tool and sync the carbs before full rebild job

Run two full tanks of fuel before any rebuild. Using MMO, Seafoam, or similar product is worth a try too. These carbs need no attention when used regularly.
