klr not revving up, water riding issues
hope someone can help me? i have a 2008 klr 650, and recently did some heavy off road river crossings. the bike stalled due to not having a t mod installed, but i got it started again, and got home. since i was home, i stripped and cleaned the air filter box and filter, also done the L shape mod.
when everything was back on the bike, it did not want to start. it will only barely idle when i choke it.
i then drained the carb on the bottom screw a few times, and got the bike going, but it still does not want to rev over 3000 - 4000 rpm .
i put in a new spark plug, and got the same result.
weirdly the temperature gauge is in the red when i start the bike, but the engine is still cold.
does anyone have advice for me?? im desperate to get my klr going again.
