01 400E Erratic Engine Idle

Recommended Posts

My wife's 2001 400E runs great except at idle. Starts reasonably easy but I have to choke it to idle as soon as I take the choke off it dies. When we are riding and come to a stop it will idle at a high RPM for a few seconds, idle down and die. It pulls hard and runs great (stock with Big Gun Exhaust, supposedly jetted by the dealer when we bought it new). It ran great for a good year before acting up. Have cleaned the carb, adjusted valves, ran carb cleaner through the gas, rode it hard and still won't idle. HELP!!!!

Ohh yeah.... Thanks

If you pilot jet was already cleaned, try just turning up your idle a little.

If its already good, then post your jetting and other mods.

Before all that, I would try removing the jets and cleaning them very well, if you have a question at all then, just get new ones...
