KLR wont start
I have just bought a KLR 650 1999.
First post. Always wanted to own one.
Im 60, never been without a bike since I was ten , mostly old and crap so have some experience making them run.
One owner from new, 6500km, has not run for three years. He reported that the last time he rode it it was popping and banging as if the timing was off.
I put a new battery in, completely dismantled and reassembled carb - (it was clean inside, watched a great video series on here) Both diaphragms look good. Plugged the vacuum line at carb to the fuel petcock and took the spring and o ring out of the petcock.
The plastic fuel enricher attachment is broken off and has been siliconed, but right at the outside end where the cable outer fits in. I dont think its leaking air.
It sparks fine - spun over with plug out,
All I am getting are some impressive backfires and occasionally it fires once nicely.
Ordered a doohickey kit so will do that as soon as I get back, as well as a Vulcan petcock and a no cable choke kit.
Unfortunately I leave for work tomorrow for a couple of months, so thats it for now, but any ideas appreciated - particularly how I go about checking ECU.
Thanks , Charlie
