Thread: Will not idle and revs extremely high

  1. #1
    I have a 2001 Buell Blast. It is all stock has been sitting for about a year. After finally getting it to start, it will not idle and when it starts occasionally it wants to rev extremely high. I have tried adjusting idle screw and screw under the plug. carb boot looks good, jets are clear. I am at a loss and do not no were to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Pull air box cover watch throttle blade, does it close all the way, possible sticking cable, or yer boot is bad. I doubt a needle is stuck, idle would be more associated with air entering engine.
