CRF 230 PROBLEMS
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:54:57 am »
Hi all,

I have a crf 230 2005 model. I have had no problem with it but at the moment need some advice from the experts.

The bike starts first time and will idle. But as soon as you open the throttle it dies on you. There is no erattic ideling. The carb has been cleaned several times and a different carb (also 230) was put on with an original exhaust. Still this problem exists. It has a new spark plug

Please advise as to what must be checked to rectify this matter

Thanks

These engines don't idle very well when cold... don't know why, but once warm, I've never had any problems. When you open the throttle, and it dies, indicates that the idle-mixture is too lean. Set it to about 1 - 1&1/4 turns out from closed & try it again?
Let the engine warm up before playing around with mixtures though.. :thumleft:

Sounds to me like there is dirt in one of the jets.
