So got the spring, pulled the carb, installed the spring went to tighten up the "Flat CR" cap and the casting broke. I think the cap was cocked and when I snugged it up it snapped. I blame myself wasn't being careful just wanted to get it done. This $30 job just got expensive. I don't think I have any other choice but to get a used carb. Unless someone has a great solution....?
With that said anyone selling a 08 450er carb or know a good place to get a used one? Found a few on ebay but they are a little high.
Got the cap fixed and have it put backed together. But to start it and have it stay idling I have to push on the thumb throttle just a bit. I think one of the sensors is being triggered or not being triggered. I just need to push it till it clicks up at the thumb throttle and it starts and idle as normal. If I let off the throttle it basically cuts out as opposed to stalling. Any thoughts on what to adjust?
Turned the idle knob up till it was reving high when running let off the throttle and it cut out. Tried to start and it would not fire up till I pushed the throttle in a bit. Then reved high as expected turned it down same thing. I think it is the sensors not sure how to check though. I'll recheck the cable slack. Right not its about 5mm of free play at the throttle, see if I can get more out of it.
