    I just came in after another unsuccessful day and the poor op kind of rubbed me the wrong way. After an eight hr ride, the expense of a hotel and such to get the bike properly serviced to only have it run worse has me very frustrated especially when I have been laid off since April. I have done all my wrenching up to this point.

    I am no mechanic but am trying to learn here. I really really appreciate all the help on this forum.

    Don't want to be a pain but just can't afford to make a mistake as I will have to park it and the klr just doesn't cut it anymore. Great bike but well you know.

    Can I ask something else? Reading many threads on this issue many have cleaned up there jets and such to only have the issue remain. Do the emulsion tubes effect the idle as well or just the mains.

    I am leaning toward running some seafoam in a heavy dose first or is this ass backwards.


    I apologize and realize your intentions.

    Finished messing with the IMS screws and no success and checked all boots and made sure the four holes off the manifold were properly blocked so vacuum problems are eliminated.

    Checked vacuum lines and front at 275mm and rear at 250mm.

    Put in some seafoam and will try it today.

    Previous owner had a factory pro jet kit and they are notorious for being fat and would expect to have a 45 idle jet in there since this is what they recommend. If so will be putting in the 42 and will note float levels jets and such to have a baseline to go off of and go from there.

    Hopefully the seafoam does the trick.

    I tried the Seafoam and no such luck so I took the carbs off and going to give them a good clean and find out what is in there as far as jetting, needles float height and all air jets.

    I am going to kill this thread since I am off topic and there is quite a lot of info out there but wanted to thank you for all your concern.

    I may pm a few of you if I may for your help.
