Jammed throttle

Postby Diesel » Thu Aug 27, 2015 5:13 pm

Scary moment the other day when the throttle jammed on full revs. A quick check showed that the pin that locates in the throttle valve groove had broken causing the throttle to jam. The 2 mile ride home was a bit exciting and the brakes were pretty hot by the time I switched the engine off. When I removed the carb, I realised that the throttle valve was sitting on top of the idle screw and if I had screwed this right out, It might have been a better temporary get me home solution.

Drilled and tapped a small hole in the carb body and fitted small screw as a guide pin. Better than buying a new carb, they haven't got any in stock anyway. Scooter now runs fine. :lol:
