Re: rickman zundapp has screaming high idle

Can't say I'm very familiar with these bikes. But, just in general, here are some things to check. First, make sure the throttle cable has some slack. It could be adjusted too tight, or sometimes the cable may just be routed incorrectly and this can cause it to be too tight. Next, make sure the slide is in the carb throat properly (all I have seen have a keyway so that the slide is supposed to fit only one way, but you can obviously turn a round slide the wrong way and the key holds it up) or the slide isn't stuck for some other reason. Then, you mention that the crank bearings are good (I question this unless you have taken them out, but that's another issue altogether), so what about the crank seals as a source of a vacuum leak? Just some thoughts, hope this helps. If not, let us know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
