06 RMZ450 questions

Recommended Posts

Im new to the bike scene and just bought an 06 and love it so far:banana: i just checked the valves and they are quite tight at 012 and 015 exhaust and 010 and 012 intake, i am wondering if it should be shimmed right away or if i could get away with a few more hours as is? (i was planning on going for a ride this weekend and will need to order in a shim kit)

next issue........... ive got a small continuous stumble when trying to hold a steady speed at 1/4 to 1/2ish throttle, idles great and smooth to WOT. any ideas?

other than that everything seems good, it starts really easy hot or cold!

Thanks in advance

maybe a jetting issue? id take the carb out and give it a thorough cleaning.

hey guys i went back and rechecked the valves and it turned out i read the thickness gauge wrong:bonk: and everything is right in spec after all:banana:.

as for the carb i found the hot start cable was stripped out and pretty much hanging off the carb, i have fixed that now but havent ridden it yet. would that be a possible cause of my issues?

Thanks

that would certainly cause your issues. Glad you found the problem
