Just finished removing the smog equipment from my '04 650L using the kit from Baja Designs. I followed the sequence laid out on the XRs Only website as it was the same as mine. I now find that the idle hangs up momentarily before settling down. Before the smog removal this was never a problem.The bike is otherwise all stock. Any suggestions?:thumbsup: :busted: :thumbsup:

On my 650R I just richened the idle mixture, it's dead stable now and no decel popping. On my 650L years back I had rejetted and removed the smog stuff at the same time it was fine.

maybe you should check your throttle cables. maybe they were disturbed somehow during the job.

What you describe is sometimes an indication of a lean carb setting.
