My SM won't idle

Recommended Posts

I took my SM out for the first time in about 2 weeks and it won't idle. It starts only with the choke out, but as soon as I put the choke in it dies. I have tried adjusting the idle with no luck. I got it warmed up just fine, because the cooling fan kicked on. I have to hold the throttle to keep it from shutting off at red lights. I have 650 miles so far and have had no problems until now. I am new to this board, but have been checking it out since I got the bike and have gotten a lot of great info. Any suggestions? Thanks.

10guy, you nailed it. I "phoned a friend" who told me to pull the air filter, spray carb cleaner in while running and see if it clear it up. Took about 3 quick hit with the carb cleaner and it runs like new now. Saved me a trip to the stealership... :banghead:
