Thank you! I'll give this a shot tonight...
I also made the switch from Red to Blue. After coming off the mighty XR650R the WR felt like my old CR250, I can now do the backflip again
Looks good, I almost bought the XR650, but now I'm glad I didn't. So much easier to throw around.
here she is!
red JD needle, 4th position, 48 pilot, big o-ring on accelerator pump. Grey wire, exhaust plug out.
Won't start at all choke/no choke. Get it to fire a little tiny bit at 1/4 throttle while cranking the e-start, but otherwise nada.
Still working on it, I guess.
oh yeah; it fired with the choke on. air/fuel screw turned 1.5 turns out.
I think I'll try 2 turns out on this next attempt.
(AIS is off, too)
nada on that un too.
(168 main jet)
Got it... choke OFF, about 2 turns out on air/fuel. Kicks so easy!
Going to go on a tiny lap and park it. She's still pre-break in...
Thanks for the vent!
Yeah mine acts a little odd sometimes too. I originally tried 2 turns out like they recommended but now 1 1/2 seems to work good. I noticed on mine it works better with the choke pulled, but every once in awhile it needs just a crack of the throttle to get it fired. If it's still hard to start check the idle speed adjustment knob, turn it a little higher on the idle that should help. On the start up problems just playing with the idle speed and the F/A mixture screw should get you dialed in most cases. Hope it's working well for you now. I like the skid plate, looks good. I thought about getting an aluminum plate but figured I'd wait to see how the plastic one held up.
it idles slow, but it idles; I'll definitely spend some time making some more in-depth adjustments on the shakedown/warmup spin.
Man, it feels GREAT though- whole different animal than my 426!
Can't wait til I gear up and take it out for a proper go at it.
(mainly tight riding here, lots of big rocks- so the plate was an essential)
