Hey all, well I finally got paid and picked myself up some new handlebars. However there remains some problems to be fixed before I get back out on the road. This is going to be quite a long post as I want to provide you guys with as much information as possible. Since my low speed (about 15 Km/h) spill a few weeks ago (well, the only time I have ridden it is the 200Ks home from the scene of the crime) my VTR250 has developed a few problems. The first of which is that it is proving more difficult to start than before the spill (started fine all the time with a bit of choke). There is enough fuel (and the fuel tap is in the right position), I assume the battery is OK. Most of the time when I press the ignition button it turns over, sounds like it is almost about to start but doesn't quite make it (tried it with the choke lever in various positions, no joy). However I have found that if I give it a bit of throttle it generally roars to life. So that is the first problem. The second problem is that once it has started it has a tendecy to just cut out when idling or when the rpms drop (such as when I give it a bit of throttle to help start it, when I release the throttle it cuts out, or sometimes after when I rev it after it has been idling for awhile). Additionally the idling isn't the smoothest sounding now. Can anybody think of some reasons what would be causing these problems that could've, in turn, be caused by my spill?. I'm not sure if this is relevant but directly after my spill when I was trying to get the bike up and running again two very friendly riders stopped and helped me out. One of them noticed that this hose was disconnected. Now I had never noticed whether it was connected or not before, so in my complete lack of mechanical knowledge I have no idea whether this is the cause of the above problems. I have taken a few photos to better explain it. Overall Photo Hose 1 Hose 2 Nozzles Those nozzle type thingies are the only things I can see where it would go. There are two of them there as indicated in the photo, are they both meant to be connected to something? Perhaps a VTR250 owner can run out to their bike and check for me? Thanks in advance for any help given guys. I'm a complete novice but I can try and provide any more information/photos if needed.
