    Oops!

    Sorry if this is the wrong section... I just figured id put it in a wide section because the Super E's are widely used. :newsmile040:

    I moved your thread to general engine fuel and exhaust

    looking at your photo it looks like you are trying to use the carb with only 1 cable i think this carb has been designed to use a throttle and idle cables IE a cable to open and another to close it and it will hang up if you only use the 1 cable
    you may need to convert your bike to a dual cable system to use this carb

    As I'm no real expert on either your model of bike or the carb you have fitted to it all i can do is guess at a possible solution
    if it were mine i would be trying to fit a spring from between the parts that the idle cable would be on so one end hooked to the location that the cable Ferrel would go the other end of the spring to seat where the end of the cable outer would sit
    might take a wee bit of fiddling to get it right
