Engine not idling

Recommended Posts

I took my 50 out to tune it today and I think I got it tuned in pretty good and was playing with the idle because it was idling high and I got that done but then when I took it for a ride for about 15 mins I wanted to see it idle in neutral and it took like 2 minutes to idle down it sounded like I was just barely on the throttle and then it idled down finally. I played with the throttle a bit thinking it was stuck or something and that did nothing. Is this normal after riding it hard for a while or is it something with the carb? I have a stock 50cc engine with a stock carb and #58 jet. It just has a freshly oil uni filter and a fmf exhaust. I also noticed on accelaration there was a little little white smoke. Am I running to rich or is it the oil from the filter because I think I might have put to much on

My guesss is too much oil on the filter and/or plugged pilot jet

Yeah I soaked both filters the inner and outer in oil and then I later read that you should just do the inner filter. Will the oil eventually dissolve or should I wash it out? I just cleaned the pilot but maybe all this oil clogged it so I will check it again.

I also just adjusted valves also so I dont think its that. Is there anyway to check if any of my gaskets are leaking? Just do a compression test right? What should the compression of a stock engine be?

      Hello friends, 
      6 months ago I encouraged my six-year-old son to learn to ride our little 2007 CRF50F. He rode a little, but kept panicking and having small spills, and I sensed it was becoming a negative experience for him. He had lost all confidence. So I gave it a break, and now, 6 months later, he's back in the saddle. Yesterday at dinner I cheerfully encouraged him to try again. He cautiously agreed, and after about 1 minute of seat time he was off. I think 6 months of strength, mental ability, etc made the difference. Maybe more than anything his confidence boosted and now he's grinning ear to ear. Here's a little video from last night...

      Hello friends, 
      Seeing as how school was about to begin, I took my boys on a 16-mile exploration ride through the country. Along the way we found a neat levee, and the boys rode across it on their little Honda dirt bikes (CRF50F and CRF70F). These little bikes are awesome. Dirt bikes are a great way to spend time together, in my opinion.

      Hello friends, 
      I pushed my boys to ride a little harder on a recent ride. No one got hurt, and nothing broke. It's so fun to watch them improving in their skills...
