hanging idle and bike wont run without choke
Did a search, didnt really find what I was looking for.
bike is an 02 with 24000 miles. Previous owner saie it sat for about a year, but he did have the valve adjusted before it sat.
Only mod ive done is k&n pods (r-0990). Reason being is the stock airbox was mangled where it met up with the carbs.
So, symptoms are hard to start. Wont start without choke on or partial throttle.
When the bike is running with full choke it will hang at about 5000 rpm.
When I turn the choke off, and hold the bike at part throttle, but the rpms will slowly start to go back down (even with the throttle open to the same position) and then will eventually die. Also, when I let off the throttle it will die immediately.
Took the carbs off and sprayed them out ( not the best cleaning in the world)
Took the petcock off, opened it up and cleaned everything
And thats pretty much where I'm at. open to options
