sticky throttle on my '01 honda 400ex

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble with my throttle releasing too slowly. I recently installed a brand new carb and throttle cable. I have good throttle response but when i let off it slowly idles down. I have lubed my cable and checked for binds in the cable. when I take the cable loose from the throttle drum, both the cable and the throttle drum operate properly but when I put the two together it malfunctions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am pulling my hair out here! lol

Is there a vent hole in the cap on the carb where the cable mounts?? It almost sounds to me like it's creating a vacuum in between the cap and barrel. makin the slide release slowly. I've see this happen on older snowmobile round slide carbs. Whe they ice up it slows throttle release dramatically.
