idle

  1. Kawasaki KFX450/KFX400
    I have a KFX 400 that will start and idle, but when you give it gas it starts back firing badly. I have put a big bore kit in. Put new valves and shims in the head. Replaced the carburetor. Triple checked the timing. I replaced the generator, voltage regulator, and a new AGM battery. I am unsure...

  3. Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Forum, It seems like a lot of individuals experience this but no one ever completes the thread with a fix. I have a early 90's (1994 maybe) Bayou 220 that has not run for 2 yrs. Acts the same today as it did then. As of today I have rebuilt the carb (cleaned and new injectors, needle...
  4. Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I have a 2004 prairie 360 that runs good, but is hard to start and does not idle correctly. So far i checked the valves and they are in spec. Cleaned the carb multiple times, and went to a #38 pilot. New battery and plugs. When i go to start it, it will just keep cranking and sometimes it will...
  5. Everything Else
    Hi all, I just bought an 06 KFX 50 for my son a few days ago. It fired right up when we checked it out, but when I got home I realised the choke had been on the whole time we were speaking with the sellers. After we got home and I started it up, it would stall everytime I tried to switch the...

  7. Kawasaki Mojave/Lakota
    I'm not quite sure what the problem is, but when I start my Mojave, (doesn't have any trouble starting) I put the choke on full and it runs just fine, slight exhaust popping when it is still warming up. Then when I take the choke off it idles at a normal speed and then slowly dies down and shuts...

    the other day i bought a mojave and it wouldn't idle so i cleaned the carb and now it will only idle with the choke on...any ideas?
  9. Kawasaki Mojave/Lakota
    I have a 1987 mojave that I recently resurrected for the second time. I was having idling issues I could not work out, so it sat for 7 years. After completely going through the carb the idling issues still persist. Greg at CWR suggesested I check my valve clearance and for cam wear, which I...

    How do you adjust the idle on a 2005 700 vforce? Never had a problem until recently. I don't know what has changed.
