Hi there! I just bought a 1987 KLR 650 and it has some trouble cold starting. I was aware that many KLR’s can be temper mental when it comes to cold starting but i’d love to be able to get it going without using any throttle. I have tried full choke, half choke etc. i have cleaned the carb, air filter, and put in a new spark plug as well. It has fresh gas in it as well. When I cold start it I have to use full choke and then give it gas. It sounds like it wants to start with no gas but simply won’t. I attempted to use the choke adjustment but I wasn’t sure if it was doing anything. At times I have to adjust the idle screw in the carb to even get it to idle for it to warm up. Otherwise I have to hold it at quarter throttle to keep it from dying on me until it warms up. I’d love to figure this out since it would be cool to start it up normal with the choke and not have to use throttle. The bike has 30,000 on the speedo. It looks really well kept and i’ve also done quite a bit of work to it since I bought it. Anyone got any pointers on what may be going on? I have not touched anything else on the carb except the idle screw on the outside of it. Another thing worth noting is that if the bike is set to full choke and I give it some throttle while trying to start it fires up very quickly. Even when it’s cold. The problem is no matter what I do it will not start without the choke on full and throttle. It’s also worth mentioning that after it’s warmed up it starts no problem without the choke and throttle.
