    A couple of weeks ago I was in an accident unrelated to the engine (brakes were torn off and lodged themselves inbetween the wheel and frame). I got a few scrapes and bruises and the bike went down, but it still ran. However I have noticed that now whenever I squeeze the clutch the engine races instead of idling, and I won't even have my hand on the throttle. What could be causing this? I replaced all the cables this week and everything else works perfectly. Thanks in advance for reading.

    You've developed an air leak somewhere. Tighten intake nuts, carb/intake seal, head bolts. You can spray carb cleaner around intake and carb and head gasket area if you can get it to idle. try choking carb to get an idle. You probably jolted something loose when you went down......good luck.
