What the heck is wrong?

I'm trying to fix my buddies 97 banshee, stock pipes, supposedly jetted but not confirmed, and a boost bottle. There are some wires unplugged under the gas tank, i've been told it's the rev limiter. I know it used to run fine like this so i figure that isn't my problem. I've been told some CDI black box can get messed up. Sometimes it'll fire up and just red line, i'll turn the kill switch and it'll stay wide open, even after you take the key out it keeps running. I stuck my hands over the carbs and choked it down. I know the carbs are ok, no sticking floats or nothing. What does this sound like, should i look more at replacing this black box everyone tells me goes bad sometimes. Please help, i'm riding alone until i get my buddies bike back up. Thanks Marc

Re: What the heck is wrong?

Sounds like two problems to me. The first is that the throttle is hanging in the wide open mode. Verify that it is returning to idle position before you start it again. Best way is to take off the air intake side without jostling the carb too much and look into the throttle bore to see where the throttle valve is sitting. The second problem is that you're missing a ground somewhere on the ignition circuit so you can't shut it down with the key or the kill switch.
