Low idling then stall without choke

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by bbyboy, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. ive got exactly the same problem as the guy of this thread https://netrider.net.au/forums/view...ostdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=stall+choke but i dont want to resurrect a 2 years old thread.

    my question is, do you adjust the idle screw when the choke is out? because my bike stall fairly quickly when the choke is pushed back in.
  2. does it still do it when its hot?
    u should adjust the idle screw when the bike is hot. if your bike is runnning like crap set it to 2 thou rpm till u can get it sorted.

    BTW sounds like an air leak in the manifolds
    should prolly check clearances and carb sync spark
  3. 1+ to it sounding like a vacuum leak...spray some carby cleaner around the caryby and if the revs change when spraying- you've got a leak.
