Klx 650

Recommended Posts

Picked up a sweet 96 KLX 650 recently that wasn't uncrated until 2000. It is tagged and titled with a BajaDesigns kit on it and about 2k miles.

I've already put about 300 miles on it up on the dirt roads in the Smoky Mountain National Park.

Fun ride, seat really sucks bad, but fun ride.

I need to sort out a carb issue. When riding along and you roll completely off the throttle, the bike dies. I've turned up the idle, but it hasn't totally cured the problem.

Thoughts?

What elevation are you riding at? I live at 8700ft. A nice aftermarket airfilter, UNI and some adjustment of the pilot screw may help you sort this problem out! Make sure the pilot jet is clean and unabstructed.

Happy trails!

If you have never checked the valve clearance, it may be worth a look. Mine did the same and was a little hard to start when warmed up. Tight valves will do that.
