I am having an issue with the idle on my xs400.
Carbs have pods, runs great. But the idle is sometimes perfect and then sometimes way too high. Riding it, it can be perfect at a stop light and then jump way up at the next light and back to perfect again.
Throttle cable is routed correctly and lubed. Carb linkage looks good. Manually closing the throttle doesn't change anything.
Carb manifolds have cracks but spraying starting fluid doesn't change the idle so I don't think that is an issue.
So I ordered a new Motion Pro clutch cable and that mad a huge difference to the clutch action. It is about 4" shorter than the other 2 that I have, fits perfect with the lower superbike bar bend that I have. The bike ( and the parts bike) both had buckhorn style tall bars.
We are all set for the DGR ride tomorrow. My wife I eager to show her new bike off. My Moto Guzzi is all clean and ready to ride as well. It looks to be a hot one, 90 degrees with high humidity. This is the only time we are not ATGATT, so at least it won't be cold and wet.
