THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I cannot seem to get a break with f*cking weber....what a nightmare....at least I think that I finally tuned it(Total PIA). But now the throttle keeps sticking around 3,000 or so RPMs. If I am moving slowingly (using a little bit of gas) the throttle seems to get stuck and the engine revs up until I give it alot of gas to free the thing-a-majig that slides along the plate-thingy. OK....can I use wd-40 or something else to stop this from happening -> anyone ever experience this? Help please....

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I have heard of this with the webers, some put a heavier spring on it. I can't remember the other solution(Big help huh?) try wd-40 can't hurt unless you are in a dusty area. Or use dry film lube-graphite comes to mind.

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

It's a simple fix. Lubricate the throttle return spring located under the fuel bowl.
As far as tuning the carb, the weber is probably one of the easiest to tune. The only thing that is hard is that you have to remove the air-horn each time you want to change the main jets.

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I had the same issue and it turned out to be a bad throttle cable. Turns out it frayed at the firewall.

I would check this out Mine finely died at full throttle and I had to quicky turn the motor off so it did not blow.

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I would not recommend WD-40 for that application. I would use a teflon-based lubricant, instead. BTW, back when I was running a Weber, it would stick all the time-- so carry a can with you on the trail.

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I also had the same problem and i cured it with a heaver return spring.

p.s i also switched back to the factory carb when i saw how it reacted on steep angles.

Re: THROTTLE STICKING ON WEBER

I had a throttle spring problem with weber on Raider. My solution was to place a spring from the throttle yoke just above the cylinder at the end of the throttle cable. There is a small hole at that point where the 2 halves are folded over. Put a loop of wire there to hook the spring into. The other end of the spring goes to holes I drilled in bottom plate of the air cleaner retainer.
Spring came from ace hardware about 2" long by 1/8 dia. They had heavy spring and light spring that size. I used the light spring.
