Common Carb Issues

Just trying to get a list of common carb issues for a 2002 TB.

From what I was able to get from the parts guy from the dealer was the following.

- The needle and seat was a common part to wear out which hinders the carbs ability to prevent fuel from back-flowing out and getting into the air cleaner.

- The pilot jet. Mentioned that it can be cleaned but at $6 it is not a bad idea to replace it.

I am currently trying to resolve a car issue I have right now and would love the feedback.

Please let me know of any other common carb issues. Once I get a bunch of isses I can post the issues and cause.

Check your throttle cable free play and make sure you arent hanging up the throttle. You may have incorrectly routed, or jammed up the throttle cable when you cleaned the carb. Easy to do :)
Throttle Cable

No problem. Throttle cable has an inline adjuster. Im thinking it may simply be routed improperly causing it to be tense. Check your routing, them give it approx. 2mm of free play
