Carb not reducing idle (?)

Post by gordonv » Sun Jun 13, 2010 11:39 pm

Need some help with my Honda CM400T carbs. A little off topic on a GW forum, but figure we all had our start on something smaller.

The bike doesn't get driven (currently for sale), and seems that now the "throttle" is sticking. The cables move freely and aren't sticking. I'm thinking the throttle is sticking in the body of the carb. I've Seafoam (1/3 can in approx 1/2 tank) already in the gas, and the bike gets run every few weeks for a short 1 mile ride.

I'm not too familar with bikes, but think I need to unscrew the top of the carb and pull the throttle out and clean it by hand. Any advise?
