    Coleman ct200u ex not returning to closed throttle.

    Hi everyone new to the group and just bought a new Coleman ct200u ex. First two days where great the bike ran Great! Well after watching red beards garage on you tube I decided to use a zip tie on the black governor spring and it felt great for another day of riding no issues. After a good full day of running I cleaned her up and put it back in my garage now two days later I jump on the bike and try to go down the road get about 100 yards before the bike dies. Well after digging in her a little bit I realized after giving the bike full throttle unless I manually move the actual
    Throttle on the engine it will stay wide open and not return to closed idle position. I removed my handy dandy zip tie thinking maybe Its not letting the throttle return. And still nothing. Any advice on what is going on? Is the silver spring the return spring and could that really already have stretched out I'm just stumped at this point and a tad frustrated. And I absolutely know the zip tie in hindsight was a bad idea but I thought that just controlled the governor. From now on I'm going to do this the rite way but would like to know if y'all have had this issue and what I need to get or fix to put this machine back in the trails thank you in advance.

    All i can really say is just twist the throttle and look at the linkage to see if works the carb.it may have come loose there

    Back to running again I'm guessing it was the silver spring I put a zip tie on if to get the spring tension again (I stretched it trying to re install like a dumby) and she is running again I don't know if it maybe had water in the carb or what from me washing it but now it's running and I'm confused because I don't feel like the throttle is any different while off maybe that arm to the governor only pulls back when running and I've been chasing a ghost and I had water I it. Feel free to chime in and correct me I'm still learning these little motors but I can tottaly say I'm addicted and this site is great for research and seeing and hearing about the awesome builds
