  9. CB175 Carb adjustment screws have no effect... (other issues)

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    My CB175 has had some problems for the past year or so. It gets stuck at high revs, have to downshift to get it to come down. I thought this might be a carburation problem. I went through Steve/Spring66's advice about CB175 carburetor adjustment. I thought I'd try this before doing a full carb...

You can kick it past, but it will scrape, and most of the time will catch and get stuck on the way back up. It' all new to me, but I think its...
