Hey guys, Anyone ever had their engine get stuck revving? I was riding along today and all of a sudden the bike just took off. Thankfully no crash as I was on a quite road and pulled the clutch then kill switch. Coasted to a stop and now anytime I start the bike it revs to 7000-8000 RPM and stays there. Throttle rolls as per normal and will still increase revs but engine will not drop below 7000. Opened up the airbox expecting stuck butterflies, but they are not stuck and operate as expected when the throttle is turned. Throttle cable does not seem to be snagged on anything and is not tight. So any ideas? As we just bought our first house I need to fix this myself.
Bike is a 2008 Tiger 1050 and is coming up on 20,000 miles.
Well... What can I say, I finally got around to tearing the bike down and all the guesses were wrong... It was a Bumblebee, who decided to die in the most unfortunate location... Which happened to be on the back stop to the throttle cable and was stopping the throttle from going all the way back to the idle position... Thanks for the advice and thankfully things are back in order.
