Won't run to will run
Hello folks, Just bought an '03 KLR which would only start with starter fluid use. Choke cable was frozen. I replaced the cable with a manual choke cable eliminator kit. Now the bike runs but won't idle.
So I figure the carb needs a rebuild kit. I rebuild the carb and she still won't idle. No starter fluid needed to crank just won't idle. SO... I call a real motorcycle mechanic and he comes over and takes the carb apart, he fiddles with it, puts it back together, still won't idle.
He looks at the choke eliminator and says what's that. I explain about the original choke cable problem. He takes it off and messes with it, puts it back on, takes it off again, adjusts it.
The moment of truth has arrived !!
We crank the bike and it settles into a perfect 1300 rpm idle and has run great since.
I'm happy, now I can add farkles !!!
That's my story Rick
