Whats your best guess

Recommended Posts

Uncorking the 650r and it wont start now.

I know Idle adustment is cridical in starting the 650r

I read through all the old posts but no one ever mentioned before a good starting point for the idle screw,as I have messed with it and don't know were it was to start with.

If I turn the Idle screw until it doesnt touch,then in till it just touchs,from this point how many turns is close to the right setting just so I can get it to start? Just pick up some fresh fuel and a plug,will try that tonight.and hope like hell.

what is your best guess??

and just becase I know you will ask!! he he

Does this sound about right.

2001 xr 650r only 500 miles new to me
