XL800 throttle issue
hey dudes, i just picked up a hell of a steal for a few hundred bucks, guy thought it was a bad starter, put a new battery in and it started right up . BUT this 800 (66E) motor has an issue ive never run in to before... when you use the choke, it accelerates freely, but, the throttle is non responsive. squeeze it all day long you will not get that thing to accelerate or raise any RPM ... has anyone ever run in to this issue before?

can you look past the exhaust and see if the wheel turn as you give throttle? also if the rod still connected from one carb to the other.
it sounds like you have some sort of air or fuel restriction.

i actually removed the exhaust and it seems like the cable moves back and forth and so does the lever on the carbs

if i best remember long time ago a had a similar issue with a xl , and i find out that the fuel pump diaphragm was bad on both carbs.
just go over the carbs and see.
