'07 Te 250 won't run with the choke off

Recommended Posts

The bike was in storage for........Years! 100 miles on it. (I just couldn't pass up the deal). It starts right away with the choke on, and has some hesitation here and there, but if I take the choke off it dies.

I dumped all the old gas. Should I start with the pilot jet and see if it's plugged up?

pilot,yes you should clean the whole carb old fuel turns to gum in the bottom of the bowl as it breaks-up it will cause more problems.

thanks! I'll pull it this AM. I looked at the online manual and I couldn't find anything on just removing the carb. I'm hoping it's pretty straight forward. I pulled out the pilot jet last night and it was completely plugged. I'm amazed the bike runs at all.
