Default Re: carb slide sticking?

As 2door says, but I have also encountered on many bikes that I have worked on that the owner will over tighten the carb clamp for the manifold. I don't know how to explain it but somehow it can warp the carb.

This may not be your problem but something else to look at. The easiest way to determine if this is the problem is the next time the slide gets stuck wide open loosen the clamp and see if the slide drops.

Also dont' over tightening the ....... dang! I cant think of the name lol. The part that you screw onto the carb for the throttle cable... anyone? lol

*Unless yours mounts directly to the cylinder
