    Motorcycle Repair
    Recently bought a 1980 Honda CM400T which is in working order apart from this issue.

    So I don't know what the problem is with my bike. The carbs have been cleaned and so I don't think that should be the problem. When I turn on my bike and just sit on it, no throttle application, no changing in choke, nothing. The bike revs it self pretty high. Not to redline but it gets up...
