Hey guys, in an earlier post I had a problem with idling after a test run of a 1998 YZ125 I got and been not necessarily rebuilding, but giving it MUSCH needed TLC and maintenance, did a bunch of stuff to it, took her out for a run, and first run was OK, but when I we went out the second time it was idling high, so I ordered some OEM clamps and stuff that I had zip tied, and idle was much better, but still a bit on the high side, so while getting a tire put on at a local Yamaha dealer, I ran my idle issue through one of the techs, and he mentioned that (LOL) I have a mean racing machine, not a pansy trail bike (more LOL) and that it these bikes shouldn't really idle, they should idle for about 3-5 seconds before dying, messes with the power band if idles. I don't mean to question his expertise, I guess in a way I am, I wanted to ask how accurate this was, what you guys thought of this. the main reason I ask, is cause I'm not a racer, and all the YT videos I've seen of the YZs about idling, they're tweaking the bikes to idle, so I'm confused, should the bike idle or not? BTW, I'm planning to take the bike out in trails and tear it up, but I have no real interest in jumps and all the cool crazy $h!t you all do, just wanted to give y'all an idea on my style of riding. Thanks in advance. p.s. Oh and do I mess with the throttle screw or the air screw to mess with the idle? Tnx again.
