anyone help with an idle issue

Recommended Posts

I bought the wife a 05 TTR125LE. The bike would not hold an idle out of the box. I adjusted the idle screw on the carb just enough to get it to hold an idle when warm. Went out riding with the wife and the idle ended up way to hi at times and just right at others. Anyone relate to this problem? Got any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help I know will come.

It takes a while to warm up. They are cold blooded. Use the choke until warm enough to hold idle.

You say you adjusted the idle screw, but what about the pilot (fuel) screw?

Ours wouldn't idle either until I turned the fuel screw out to 2 1/2 turns. It was only 1/2 from the factory.

All of the above, plus letting the bike break in. Had the same issues with my wife's '01 until it was well broken in (standard 'by the book' break in proceedure + about 3 easy rides).
