I just purchased my first KLR 650 (7-31-13), The guy I got it from said it was in great condition, with less then 8000 miles on, I test drove it, everything seem fine. Drove it home, no problems, The next day I drove it to work in the morning, rode nice, At lunch when I rode it, it started to cut out at stop lights, like it wanted to die. I had to bring up the RPMs to keep it running, When I got to work I took my hand off the throttle to see what it would do and it died, but started right up and idled. So I thought no big deal, after work I went out to ride it home and it wouldn't start, I was like great now how am I going to get home? I messed with the choke lever and pitcock and somehow it started, I rode home down the Highway and in stop and go traffic it again seems to want to die. When I did get home I took my hand off the throttle again and it idled just fine. Today when I went out to ride it, it would even start just, cranked. Any help would be appreciated .
