2012 TTR 230 overheating and dying

Recommended Posts

So I have a 2012 TTR 230 that is overheating just driving down to mail box and back. while out trail riding ill get about 30 min or so till it overheats to the point of dying. funny thing is it takes a min to warm up for first start of day and usually dies upon giving it gas. If I ride half choke everything is fine. ive check and cleaned the carb, jets, air filter and changed spark plug and oil. im starting to wonder if maybe its the air fuel screw but im not sure how to adjust that. any ideas :confused:  :excuseme:

Don't what's exactly Goin on but to get to the pilot mix screw u have to remove the plug by drilling a hole and putting a screw in it and pull it out

awesome do you think getting the bigger jets will help open it a little as well or would it be a waste im just doing this for trail riding not racing

it is running too lean...

 

you should rejet to bigger jets and up the idle jet

 

you will burn the motor up real quick

 

also put stock air filter back in that will cause it to be less lean but hard to start
