2000 WR choke problems
Posted May 28, 2009 - 07:42 PM
I just picked up a WR400 and it is having the infamous won't run without the choke on problems. I was told the carb needed to be cleaned when i bought it and so far i have come across a few things. The throttle slide was in upside down, didn't fix the issue. The pilot jet was sorta plugged, i soaked it in the ultra sonic and it looked brand new again but didn't fix the issue. The only other thing i can think of is the "mixture screw" (i think thats what it is called) does not have an o-ring on it, it looks like it is supposed to in the parts diagram. Will this cause problems? Other than this stuff i am open to suggestions, its killing that i bought the bike but can't ride it:bonk:

Is your float set up right?
Did you check for air leaks where the carb and cylinder meet?
When you said the trottle plate was upside down - you made SURE right? Because it's proper position makes it look like it's upside down.
You're running fresh gas and a new plug correct?
I only use Shell 91 octane (has no ethanol) - I find my bike runs very well on it.
Where in Ontario are you located?
