Bought this R65 last week. Some days it starts up within one or two cranks, some days it starts after very lengthy crank sessions, somedays I can't start it all. It has started on the first crank as cold as 60 degrees. For the first 30 minutes or so of a ride (even on a good day) the bike will not stably idle and I need to keep a touch of gas on at all times. Pretty heavy vibrations as well. Today (balmy 74 degrees F) the bike started after an agonizing 15 minutes of cranking, I revved it in neutral for 5 minutes and slowly let it into 1st gear, where it stalled, died and refused to restart. From what I've read a carb rebuild kit is the first item on the to do list. Should I mess with the timing first? Or do anything before a carb rebuild? I'm not mechanically inclined but would like to become so (one of the reasons I bought the bike) Is there a really good thread for noobies rebuilding these carburetors? PO has yet to send me the Haynes as promised, so I was hoping to find a good how-to here.
