Need to get carburetor cleaned?
I've had my bike a couple years now, don't drive it often, just started driving it to and from work (20min ride each way) every day. Couple weeks ago while I'm driving, my idle suddenly no longer wants to stay just above 1000 RPMs, but suddenly wants to stay stuck at 4000 RPMs. I happen to be on my way to the place where the bike was purchased to get my helmet fixed, and the guy comes out, messes with the idle adjuster (which I tell him isn't the issue...he cranks it way up instead of down btw which I didn't realize for several days...), then tells me I need to get the carb cleaned.
Since I got my idle adjuster back to where it should have been, it starts out fine when I haven't ridden the bike for a few hours, but after 15-20 min of riding it, is idling high again (although closer to 3000 RPMs the last week or so).
Anything I can check to eliminate as a possibility? Should I get the carb cleaned? Thanks in advance.
