Chuck, i gotta quick question about the throttle switch and stuff. I've check mine to make sure they are turning off and on athe right time (wide open and just as you touch the throttle cable) but would a bad switch cause surging? Here is the deal, if i step on teh gas and bring the rpms to 2000, after a minute it heads to 3000 and then back to 2000 after 15 seconds. Any ideas? thanks matthew 84
