My ka100 is revving up to 18000 rpm which is too high but doing that at half throttle and shuts off past that. Would anyone have a clue what the issue could be? I just recently rebuilt the carby and cleaned out the reeds I don’t know if it is the inlet jet or something to do with the lever. Any input would be a big help.
It’s revving on the stand?
Yes on the stand it’s doing this
Check that the gasket on the reed cage is installed correctly, you may have it backwards and blocking a circuit
Checked the gaskets they were the right orientation and the four bolts for the reeds are torqued down as well
If this only started happening after a rebuild it very likely the carb.
Do you have both needles out 1 turn? If I understand you correctly it is revving uncontrollably to 18k (This is a bad idea). If it is very lean this can happen. Also, are the H and L needs in the correct way? While they look the same they are not.
I stripped the inlet valve threads rushing to put everything together for the next day, figured that out when I took it out and saw some threads missing. Both are at one turn or one min and 55 sec I think from when it was blue printed. Never touched high or low needles kept them where they were.
