carb problem. bike idles super high

on my cm200 i just cleaned my carb out a few days ago. it wouldnt idle at all. after the carb clean, it is idling at maybe redline (i have no gauges right now- still project status)
the jets are in place, and i was careful not to damage them when i took them out for cleaning. what could be the cause of this?

also, the magic behind carburetors confounds me. this was my first attempt at a serious carb cleaning.

also,FWIW, this is a parallel twin, but uses one carb

First, is the throttle closing all of the way?
Second, is the choke engaged?
Check those and let me know.

choke engaged, and throttle feels like there is a lot of play in it. it feels like the throttle only works for about a quarter turn, but the grip turns more than that. i only feel something moving.
i have learned this bike likes to start with a closed throttle, but im not sure if it is closing all of the way right now.

sounds like the slide might be sticking and staying open a bit. Lube cable. Check slide edges for gunk buildup.

i lubed the throttle cable when i did the carb clean.

it did this before, but it was caused by the throttle cable being routed and bunching up.

Sounds like the slide is sticking. Take off the air cleaner and stick you finger in there, then move the throttle and make sure the slide is returning all the way to the bottom.

i went for a little ride around the neighborhood and the carb is good now. the seat is great, the idle is good, it's all good- woo. thats the first positive ride i have had in almost 2 years.


i need to get some kind of peg welded onto the kickstand though. the sole of my shoe got a little melty looking for the kickstand.

now i really need to get this thing finished.
IT RUNS!
