    XR600 idle problems

    Allready changed out the pilot jet and no signs of build up in the carb but thanks for the info, I will check the cap vent...........
  2. I was wondering if anyone can give suggestions on correcting idle problems on my bike. I have an 89 XR600. If I kick thru a few cycles with throttle open to flood the bowl, followed by a quater kick, the bike starts. It idles perfectly for a few minutes then dies with a popping sound as if it were out of gas. The second thing that leads me to believe that it is being starved for fuel is that when trying to start it again, I have to flood the bowl again with a few open throttle kicks. If I rev the RPMS, the bike will stay running. Any pointers ould be appreciated. thanks
