2009 Metro, *almost* running great

Postby RacerX10 on Sun Jun 03, 2018 4:00 pm

2009 Metro, 650 miles, looks like it just rolled out of the Honda dealer. Been sitting a long time.

Drained the tank, pulled the carb and soaked the aluminum parts in carb cleaner over night.

It's running fantastic now except for poor / racy idle. What I've found is that I can remove the hose from the vacuum port at the top, cover it (the port on carb) with my finger and the idle settles down perfectly.

I'm not entirely sure how that vaccum / EGR system is supposed to work. Does that port on the carb pull vacuum in the air box which in turn pulls vacuum / gases on the EGR line from the cylinder ?

Thanks for any ideas ...

Found idle jet was still clogged after soaking. I'm sure that's what's wrong.
