    Fast idle - '02 WR426

    Thanks for the help. I'm going to check the assembly of the fuel mix screw first (thanks Rasmus), then I'll go through the procedures you guys listed. Maniac, I checked, and the hot start is working normally.

    Fast idle - '02 WR426

    A bit of a long story here, but bear with me. I didn't start my bike for a few months and had trouble starting it. Removed the carb and found it was starting to get gummed up. Disassembled it, making sure to clean the jets and passages. It started better and ran OK but the idle was fast and it wouldn't respond to any changes in the idle adjustment screw. I noticed it would leak fuel a bit if it sat for a few minutes. Replaced the float valve which corrected the fuel leak (dried/cracked o-ring). Now, it starts easily, idles fine and runs well, but it still idles fast. If I rev the engine, sometimes the idle will drop to its normal speed but it won't stay. Any suggestions?
  3. I have a 2003 Warrior and I'm struggling with an electrical problem. The bike starts and runs great, but it cuts out when I attempt to put in in reverse. It seems as soon as the red reverse light comes on, it cuts the ignition somehow. I tried to troubleshoot the problem and discovered it won't crank the starter if the bike is in gear when I pull in the clutch. It will only crank over in neutral. I went through the electrical diagram, but I'm not very skilled with the electrical stuff. Can someone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot and hopefully fix this problem? Thanks a lot for your help!

    Has anyone had a similar problem? What did you do to fix it?

  6. Thanks for the advice. The other night I realized. I could spread the edging open, after that it was easy to reinstall. I didn't know there was metal reinforcement in the edging. Once it was back in place. I used the mallet to compress the edging sides together.
  7. I have a rubber mallet. Probably a dumb question, but how do you do it?
  8. No, I haven tried them. Not sure if the ones I have will work, but its worth a try. What I really need would be snap ring pliers with 6" wide jaws! I'm wondering if that's actually how the manufacturer installed these. I'll give my pliers a try anyway.
  9. I have a Weekend Warrior toyhauler that came with a section of carpeting that's used to cover the cargo floor in the rear once you're unloaded your bikes. The front and rear edges of the carpet have a rubber strip installed that's supposed to prevent these edges from fraying. The rubber strips are molded with a "groove" in one side that fits very snugly over the edge of the carpet. This system has worked pretty well, but there have been a few instances when the edge caught in the tiedowns in the floor and have come loose from the edge of the carpet. I've tried re-inserting the carpet into the rubber strips, but I haven't had any luck. It's really difficult to spread open the groove and still be able to push the edge of the carpet into place. Does anyone know the "right" way to fix this? Is there a special tool that is used? The carpet is in good shape and I don't want to replace it, as it matches the carpet that is permanently installed on the lower parts of the trailer walls. Any advise would be appreciated!

    Christmas to New Years in Ocotillo Wells

    Jeff, It looks like we'll be getting started later than expected. We plan on getting there in the late afternoon, probably 3 or 4 PM. We have a blue and silver F250 and a Warrior toy hauler. We are looking forward to meeting everyone. Michael

    Christmas to New Years in Ocotillo Wells

    Jeff, We didn't get to meet on Thanksgiving (something about your bike blowing a motor?) but we had a great time with Big Mike and the rest of the group. We are planning on heading out on Monday the 27th and would like to ride with your group. I'm looking forward to meeting you as well.

    Jeff, Hope you get your bike issues taken care of. We (my family) were planning to meet up with our friends in Ocotillo this weekend, but they are backing out. I was wondering if there would be a place for us in Big Mike's group. Let me know - I wouldn't want to show up uninvited!
