Hi all first post here, I have searched for the past 2 hours and cant find the answer please help. I have a 2001 yz426f and normal cold start up with choke out. It starts first or second kick no prob. After letting it warm up a bit i push choke back in and bike dies. Do this 2 or three more times, same result. I then rode around easy for 5 minutes with choke pulled out, bike now good and warm, push choke in and bike dies, i dont get it. I have messed with idle bringing it up and down, bike still dies.
