High idle all the time

Post by Youngrider95 » Wed May 08, 2019 11:27 pm



I recently purchased a 77' Honda Goldwing GL1000 and it has started revving up to about 4000 RPM whenever I start it even though the idle screw is all the way out. Any thoughts on why it would do that? Thanks!

Does adjusting the choke make any difference?

I've found that when gas was in the oil had alot to do with the high idle. Im in the process of rebuilding all 4 carbs. And sinking all. I'll keep this site posted😑
