Hi, I just bought an 1998 XR600R from someone I work with - didn't take it for a ride, it started first time and idled perfectly - so assumed all was ok. I paid the tiny sum of 575 pounds and took it home. Today, I decided to take it out for a ride after getting it insured etc. Off a went, then after about a 100 yards though I would give it a twist of the throttle and *cough splutter....stall* started first time and then repeat....I found that to get the bike back home again I could barely give the thing any throttle otherwise it would bog and die. I didnt have the choke on - generally know how 'they' run as I have an XR650R - but the bogging on this XR600R is unbelivable. I took the carb off and gave it a good clean (had been sitting in my friends garage for about 4 years), but this hasn't really improved anything. Anyone any ideas?? Cheers ice.
