My leg aches....
From trying to start my 2001 TT600R. I am therefore after some suggestions before I resort to the tedious removal and complete strip of carbs etc. I know a lot of you out there are rather knowledgable on these matters, all suggestions welcome. It WAS running fine but then refused to start one day, it wouldn't fire properly and whilst kicking would occasionally splutter and some times kick back, ouch. I have had the bike since new so I know how to start it. Yesterday I managed to get it running by winding in the idle screw to lift the throttle slightly, but when running it revved really high then eventually settled.
When you touch the throttle it revs sky high and takes about 10 seconds to settle back down (glad I wasn't trying to ride it). I suspected that maybe the primary carb slide plunger was sticking, took the top off to observe and it seems fine.
Could it be a problem with the secondary carb slide or diaphragm? I know these dont normally operate until you pull the throttle to a certain position but before I start to strip her down I thought I would ask if anybody has suffered similar symptoms.
