2003 DRZ400E Won't idle

Recommended Posts

Just installed the JD Jet Kit, and can't get the bike to idle. I am in SouthEast Michigan. Exhaust is all stock. Should other adjustments be made other than the needle and jet provided in the JD Kit?

No, slide stayed in, but idle was screwed up before. I was hoping the jet kit would help with this as well as normal running.

Idle is really high with the choke on, but drops to the point of dying when the choke is shut off. I have tried to adjust the idle level using the adjuster on the left side of the carb, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Try cleaning the carburetor pilot jet and passages in the fuel screw circuit. Remove the fuel screw and check that the spring, washer, and O-ring are installed. Make sure there are no air leaks from any of the hose connections.

The idle should not be a problem area.
