    xp 800 mag(front) carb sticking

    I cleaned my fuel filters and replaced the grey fuel lines. After putting the carbs back on my 96 xp the front carb sticks. If i undo the new hose clamp that runs from the front carb to the inlet of the back carb the throttle pops back to where it should against the idle set screw. I have no idea whats wrong. Any ideas?

    define "sticks" sounds like the linkage is hitting the zip tie

    The carb will open normal when the thumb throttle is pushed in but return slowly when you take your thumb off. It also wont return all the way to the idle set screw unless the fuel line on the opposite side has the clamp loosened. With the clamp tight it doesnt close but with it loosened the throttle pops back and functions as it should.

    OOOOOO... I know, I know.





    When you intal the carbs the clamp gets wedged on the exh manifold. In-turn, the clamp presses on the back side of the throttle butterfly shaft, stopping it from turning freely....

    I pulled my hair out tracking this one down. Use SS T&B zip ties on the inter-carb connections.

    Thanks Steach, that fixed it. All I had to do was twist the clamp up. Its in such a crazy impossible to see spot I would have never figured that out.
