KDX 200 won't idle when upright

Postby MistrRoboto » 04:53 pm Oct 10 2015

Hey fellas,

Odd issue that has persisted for a while and bugging the hell out of me. Bike kicks on the first start, idles a bit high as it warms, then back off to normal idle (when on the kick stand tilted over). I go ride it around to warm her up and it goes fine, but as I come to a stop, it starts to die immediately. If I put it back on the side stand, it instantly idles high again and stays there. Tilt back upright, idle slows and normally it dies.

What can cause this? I checked the float and used the "level" method outlined in the link I have seen around here. Also measured it and its basically on the mark +/- 1mm.

Thanks!
Jim

Startling discovery! The float bowls were not even. Looks like one might have been bent a bit when I was adjusting the tang a while back. So when up righted, maybe that far side float was too low and cut gas early? I'm hopeful! It's all I could find in there. Going to test her out this evening.
