When idling a very fast turn on the throttle kills the engine, if i roll on a little i can rev it up quick and no problems, but even a small instant change in throttle from idle kills it even when the bike is warm
is this normal? or maybe a jetting issue?
3x3 and yosh rs2 at sea level with 145 main and clip on needle in 4th position, stock pilot jet, fuel screw maybe 3 turns out
it idles good and runs good otherwise
please halp

Is your idle set high enough? I had to bump mine up once to eliminate that.

My guess is it's a Mikuni....Which jet kit are you running?
How is it's general performance ?

If you have a tach set to 1700/1800 rpm...It's not uncommon to have a some hesitation from low rpm...
I wouldn't be concerned about it's static performance as its all good when when riding..
