2001 WR 426FN Bought new. baffle out, grey wire mod, cut throttler stop, all the basic mods to unleash the beast. Bike was bullet proof for years. Lost health insurance and couldnt ride for 3 yrs. Got insurance and decided to put bike back in action to ride with my 16yr old. Having idle issues / was popping bad on decel and would not idle unless choke was out. I have adjusted idle screw 2 turns out and air 1 3/4 out. Pulled carb and cleaned thoroughly, cleaned jets, new main. put carb back on and have a very high idle. randomly the idle will hang high and then return to normal, but mostly it just seems to remain at high rpm at idle. I checked the boots
where carb attaches for vacuum leaks and there are none. Research on the site tought me to inspect the vacuum slide plate. It was installed properly and has no cracks. It does feel loose in the carb against the slide but I have nothing to reference this against so im not sure if this is normal. I have ordered a new o-ring for the slide plate and a new gasket for the top of the carb. I should get these towards end of the week and install to see if there is any change. From my research on here everyone seems to be alot more knowledgable than me......lol. does anyone have any thoughts that may help me out. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
