Idle problems and hints would help

Recommended Posts

The bike starts fine, then when its warm I try to turn of the choke and it just dies. It will stay running if I keep the throttle open a little but otherwise no luck. I havent made any adjustments to the bike lately and the last time I took it out it ran great. My buddy seems to think it could be a dirt pilot jet or something like that. I dont know I have never been a carb guy any suggestions would be great

I think your buddy is right. That's the jet it idles on without the help of the cold start pulled. If cleaning doesn't work, just replace it.

There is also an idle adjustment, I would clean the jet first, replace secondly, and clean and lube the idle adjustment. I adjust mine on the fly, sometimes multiple times each ride. Idle can change with Temp, altitude, and weather changes.
