Default Re: Throttle useless

well i just finished my kulana moondog and I had the same problem. it would run 15 mph and i am not even twisting the throttle. when I squeeze on the clutch to let it idle it would race and I would have to shut it down. I took the throttle apart and it turned out that the cable end on the twist throttle was not resting on the stopper meaning all the way down without any tension on the cable. The finish of the plastic twist throttle was so cheap that it was stuck in the middle position when I installed it initially. So it was as if the throttle was half way open already. when I examined it, i reinstalled it and got it on right. Now my bike is almost too slow at idle. So try a closer look at your throttle assembly cuz it might be the same problem as mine. by the way idle adjuster, decreases to the left, increases to the right. I am going to order another throttle hopefully it will be a better unit than the one that came with my kit. hope this helps.
