The bike has developed a very erratic idle.
just standing ticking over the revs will build up alarmingly and then slowly reduce. I have checked the throttle cable operation and it has the correct free play and the Throttle valve hits the bottom of the carb body but still the best way to bring the revs down is to wind out the throttle stop screw. I have checked and cleaned the carb this afternoon but no improvement. Any ideas why?
