First off Hi, how are y'all? Second hopfully this post is in the right spot. If not please move it.
Anyone ever run into a issue where their bike over heats in a few minutes of riding or idling and not being able to get the rpms to drop below 2500?
My recent buy is the 1999 Klr 250 which was running great till the problem stated above. As soon as I kick it over the rpms are at 3000 and and the temp gauge starts climbing.
-here is what I've done:
-I just cleaned the carb
-Adjusted the mixure screw
-adjusted the idle screw
-adjusted the valves per spec
-replaced the plug
-did a oil change
-coolant flush and change
-Replaced Radiator sensor switch
- adjusted and lubed the throttle cables, brake cables and clutch. Also checked the choke and choke cable and its seems fine.
Cleaned the air-box and replaced the filter with a oem filter.
Could be the result of a tiny vacuum leak, but I cant find one. tried spraying WD-40 to locate it but the rpms dont jump.
It stays in the High rpms, and loses power past 45mph and will over heat unless moving. I installed a manual fan switch to help with the over heating, but doesn't help much. It died on a trail today up the mountain and i had to stop and wait for it to cool down before I would dare start it up.
I am offically stummped. Hopefully someone can shine some light on this because the weather is nice and the trails are calling me.
