I'm officially a



I got off the highway today on my 250 after cruising at 80 mph. When almost to work and noticed when slowing down my bike was still reving around 7k + ! I dropped gears and lowered it a bit, but still reving high. When on a side road, i pulled over. I was worried a throttle cable or something was stuck or not working just right so turned engine off and back on, same issue. I was worried thinking I was going to have to visit patrick with Motorcycles Unlimited..... and I figured it out.


My choke was still on 3/4-full.
