Thanks Benzmac! I had NO idea it was like this! I once attempted to change the spark plugs (attempt, was no successful), and i had the housing that goes from the air filter over the motor off and saw down the pipe, had someon push the gas and saw it move open. I guess I would think that my first idea is logical enough! Interesting... does the motor that opens the throttle ever break? That would be interesting...
(maybe this should be a new post...) What causes Limp home mode? And what is limp home mode? Only 2nd gear? What else?
