    XP Revving?

    My friend has a 2001 XP, which he tried to run for the first time in months, today. The throttle cable was siezed, but I got that free, then went to start the motor, and it revved up to full revs, and wouldn't come down! I disconnected the cable at the motor end, and the cable wheel was free to turn by hand, but the motor did the same thing when I started it with the throttle closed, and when I turned it open by hand it had no effect! Is there something that could have siezed/stuck further into the fuel system that I could get to (beyond the motor-end cable connection). Hope you can suggest something, as it's holidays next weekend, and the local ski shop will be pulled out with work! I'd rather do it for him anyway, but I'm a Yamaha man, and haven't worked on these motors yet! Thank's.

    doesn`t this XP have 2 carbs? did you look into the throttle bores to physically see that the blades are indeed shut?
    also check you linkage, there are adjustment areas for synchronizing that were pre-set from the factory, something could be hanging up...PR...

    you should also post this in the 2 stroke forum for better results...

    Thanks' for reply.I thought it was carbs, he says it's got Fuel Injection, but I can't see under exhaust and motor to confirm. I don't mind getting involved with carbs, but I wouldn't like to touch Injection systems. Just wanted some feedback before I commit to helping him, and saving him from a lost weekend! Winter maintenance isn't in his vocabulary!
