'00WR I Can't get the pig to Idle
Posted December 09, 2001 - 09:40 PM
The bike will not idle even on the go in the woods it will stall mid turn. If I turn the idle screw up till it will idle the bike runs great except when I twist and let off the throttle it will stay up around 2 thousand(guesstimate)RPM. It stays at this elevated idle for about thirty seconds then slows down to the correct idle speed.
I would put up with it this way if I were out in the dunes but in the tight woods this condition just will not do.
I have a friend who has the same bike with same problem but he never rides the bike so it doesn't affect him as it does me. email@example.com

If it "hangs high" in rpm then settles - its an indication of lean...but your 30 sec hanging high sounds quite a long time though.
Try tweaking the fuel screw out at 1/2 turn increments. If you get past about 2.5 you need a richer pilot jet (maybe). Ideally it should be between 1 and 2 turns from seated.
Fuel screw, what fuel screw ??? The one in the little inaccessible recess under the float bowl (bottom of the carb). If you want easy tweakability find the thread on Kouba-T and buy one via NH Kevin like the rest of us.
Also...when did you last clean the carb ??

I have always been afraid of messing with the jetting and had the mind set of why break it if it ain't broke but I guess it's broke so I gottta do something bout it.
I am no wizard when it comes to carbs but I am willing to play around. About this fuel screw add-on I am gonna have to get one.
The jetting is the stock jetting whatever it came with and I shamefully have to admit I have not cleaned the carb but I beleive today is the day to learn me something about carbs and I might look into the octyprob.
I read alot of the discussion about the octy and think I can figure it out so wish me luck.

Additionally you should be running atleast 9 disks on the e-series to take advantage of the increased power it provides. Most of us are running the whole stack (12) and are seeing excellent results.
