    XLT1200, hard to start then IDLEs to almost WOT! Help!

    Hi there, ok so i get my XLT back together today after months of being apart! Well i start her up, last week she ran perfect i put it back together (just fairings and accessories etc... nothing motor related) And i couldn't get it started. Checked gas checked spark found out i think the carbs went dry got them good and primed started it up and it was idleing at about 3k so i killed it and then started it again and the idle raced to 8k. I killed it and here i am. I ran it last week with the muffler off just to start it up and make sure it was good and it ran perfect.

    any ideas?

    i came in to suggest either your jets need some severe tuning or your throttle cable is stuck open lol

    Rich, was going to suggest checking the throttle cable. mine did something similar where he small rubber guide/seal in the trigger was cocked just a bit holding the throttle open just enough. Anyhoo, glad you got it figured out.
