Throttle jammed when riding in rain
Permalink  
 


My OE runs fine in good weather condition but when riding in rain my throttle feels very sticky and when I let off the throttle grip, it jammed at about 1/4 carburetor opening thus I had to force it shut to an idle opening.

However when I turned off the engine and twist the throttle open and close, it feels normal. When I start it back, the throttle feels sticky and tend to jam as mentioned.

*This only happens when riding in rain.

Have you guys ever encounter this problem?

I've replaced the throttle cable with the new one although the old one is still has smooth action but it still didn't solve the problem.

no

Ahha finally I'm not the only one! Yes only sticky when riding for me. With engine off the throttle does not stick.

 

The problem is the slide is worn.

 

The air flow through the carb with the engine running draws the slide towards the engine. At this angle the slide seems to hook up at the lower range of the slide opening. 

Can also be heard at idle as a ticking sound.

I have tried sanding/polishing the slide and carb - improvement but not fixed. 

I tried greasing the slide - works for about 2 miles.

 

i cannot find a new slide anywhere. A new carb is £300. I'm looking into a different make of carb that will fit but this will be a fair amount of work.

 

Thought about a sleeve over the slide to remove the play where its worn but don't see this working For any length of time.

 

any one else have this problem?

 

how did you fix it?

With an answer to the "unanswered problem of arip_rccar", you're welcomed with open arms to the TTR forum, ma77.

I had a similar problem with a slide of an Amal carb on my old Triumph.
The slide would chatter and rattle because it was so worn - my remedy was to gently squeeze the slide more circular.

It worked but only for a short time before I bought a replacement carb. hmm

Thanks so much ma77 and Martyn for the advise.

I have removed the carb slide recently and I noticed the coating on the slide especially on the engine side was gone partially.

I will try to solve the problem by drop the needle down for 1 clip position.
