Can someone throw some suggestions at me please?
2 weeks ago my 2000 KLR suddenly won't idle and when I keep it running, it pumps gas out the plastic nipple on the top of the carb (I think it used to have a vent line on it to the airbox...does that sound right?). BTW, the bike has 12k troublefree miles on it.
I took the carb off, replaced the diaphram/slide unit ($140!) and installed a DynaJet kit. The float bowl looks fine and the little pointed float needle also looks fine.
So today I put it all back together, I start it up AND GAS PUMPS OUT THE PLASTEC NIPPLE AGAIN!
I took off the float bowl off and it seem fine in there....could the choke be the issue? It functions fine....I'm really at a dead end in this analysis and a replacement carb is $450!
Would someone throw me a bone please.....Doyle (raydog)
