Honda 2000i generator problem

I'm having trouble with my Honda 2000i. I've just cleaned the carburettor and cleared the jets and it starts fine, but the engine runs at top speed. It seems that the eco throttle doesn't kick in. I didn't have to disturb the eco throttle mechanism when I cleaned the carb. Any ideas?

Thanks

    Have you confirmed that the throttle plate moves smoothly, that it is still connected to the original linkage, and that there are no limit screws that have gotten moved? It may be possible to re-install the carburetor with a linkage element set on the wrong side of another component.

    Yep. Did that when I was a kid on my dirt bike. Put it back together. Kickstarted it and off it took down the street , full wide open throttle with me holding on for dear life. I had to lay it down. Ouch. I still have the scar on my knee to remind me

    Don't straddle that Honda till you get the throttle figured out. :p

    BTW - if you still are having problems after trying the above - post your question to the Honda EU2000 Yahoo group. It a very active board with lots of knowledgable people there.

    I believe there is a little servo that controls the throttle in Eco mode. (I may be confusing it ith another inverter genny however!) check to see if the servo move. The question might be, is it running "full throttle" or just running full RPM? A different perscription,
