XR650R idling trouble?

Recommended Posts

whats up guys im new to the forums and im having some trouble with my XR650 brought back from the dead, it had been sitting for about 12 years with gas in the carbs so as you can imagine it was ugly

i recently went through the carbs and had it running great, but then i realized there was alot i was missing out on without the bike being uncorked 

so today i got my shipment of parts

HRC exhaust tip, 175 main, 68s pilot, b53e needle in 4th position, side panel mod, k&n filter against the opinion of others,48 state intake, and smog block off kit

anyway i fired the bike up and it sounded great then died :banghead:

and now im sitting here wondering WTF!!!? :foul:

any help you guys can offer would be really appreciated

Set the idles higher, at least until it warms up. 1400 is normal by the manual, but on my stock carb I cant get it work properly on less than 1600.

BTW, how many turnes out on the idle screw?
