Return spring tension
Is there any adjustment to the throttle return spring?
I've noticed that my Aspencade does not return (very fast) to an idle when I let off the grip.
I have 3 complete sets of carbs, and notice that one of the others returns about like the ones on the bike, but the other set snaps back shut like I would think they should.
I would think your wrist would tire quickly as strong of a spring as was on that set, but I was thinking that as much as the Aspencade was built for comfort, maybe adjustable spring tension was something else built in.
If there is a way to adjust the tension, I'd like to tighten it up a little so it idles down a little faster than it does now.
Thank you to all for all the help I've gotten from this board.
