  12. tried that all ready and it still wont idle. i did look at the airbox but that was before i found TT and knew anything about the snorkel
  13. ok so heres my problem... i bought a hardly used fully stock 2003 CRF 150f on ebay. the previous owner popped the clutch, fell off, and never got back on after only riding it for about 10 miles. it has been sitting in a garage ever since. so i had it shipped from illinois to new york where i live, and go to start it and it took me a few hours to get it started since its my first bike and all. once i finally get it started after messing around with different techniques and choke positions, i found out tht it starts on the 2nd kikc on half choke and with a little bit of throttle. so i get it running and rev it up for a little bit and open the choke. after doing this and trying to let it idle, i find out that it keeps stalling whenever i try to let it idle. so i mess around with the choke trying it in differnet positions and after like 3 hours of trying 2 figure somthing out, i got fed up wiith it and left it alone for what was left in the day... so... can anyone tell me what this might be or how to fix it? any help would be more than appreciated. and this is my first bike but i am pretty knowledgable about engines and what not.
