Did this ever get resovled?
I have the same problem on a 94 XR 600
Runs great but just will die at a stop light. Starts easy great response just a intermitent stall while off the throttle.

I ended up buying a mikuni flat slide from XRs only. Problem solved! And as an extra bonus it starts up so much easier.

I would ask Eddie on this one, but make sure your fuel screw is adjusted for best idle then set the idle screw, I know there is no tach, but play with it on the up side. Mine came new with what I thought was a high idle, and after lowering it a little was hard starting and stalled sometimes, idled it up and no problem. I now have just the Dyno Jet kit, have not drilled the slide yet, and this bike purs and idles nice. Maybe check the float level, if its to high it can cause exess fuel to enter the intake at idle or when coming to a stop. Good Luck.

Since there is no real pattern, other than at idle, for it quitting.

My experience suggests the CDI or the carb float/needle "sticking".

I'm having the same problem with my '94. It's intermittent, but the damn thing tends to stall at stoplights. I'll be doing the smog removal and dynojet/Dave's mods soon. I'll check for the slosh thing, thanks Dave.

Yes only at idle. To replace the cdi is there a better choice than the stock unit? Also what is Dave mod or Dyno jet?

Thanks

The xr650l's come jetted very lean , Daves mods are shimming the needle up, installing bigger jets and drilling the slide vent holes to allow the slide to open faster. The Dyno Jet Kit is a jet kit from Dyno Jet, and contains a new much richer and adjustable needle, a softer slide spring and bigger jets. I have not tried Daves mods, because even though you shim the needle up, to the rich side, it is still a lean needle, and drilling the slide allows it to open faster and so does the softer spring in the Dyno Jet Kit. There are people here that swear by Daves Mods. It was just my personal choice to use the DJ kit. Starts easy, runs very strong.

The dyno jet kit is a product from dynojet to charge you $50 for the dave mods, except not as good and without real keihin jets.

It includes a larger main jet (with a # you can't compare to a keihin jet size) and a needle designed to compensate for the too-small pilot jet (using the main to compensate for the low-speed circuit- a no-no for sure!)

The kit also contains a softer spring for the CV-slide, which in my opinion allows the slide to open *more* for a given rpm/throttle combo, but doesn't really allow the slide to open *faster*.

The mods are to fix some inherent CV carb problems, and a non-adjustable needle.

The XR600 was not saddled with these street-compromises.
