    Hi Guys,
    Wondered if anyone else had had this problem. Bike starts with "Fast Run" slide open ,runs ok like that but as soon as slide is reduced during normal warm up , it will NOT idle ? Have found in the past that this becomes progress'vly worse as engine warms up. Have sloshed in injector cleaner into injector throats, added some to the tank ,.....no difference???
    Just back from a warm-up run now , note that bike will not run unless slide on at least 1/3 open ? Any ideas ??
    Cheers,
    Dorren

    98 is the last of the carbied ones? If so, usually means an air leak but also can be blocked up air passageways and the like. Carb out, cleaning after dismantling, possibly also checking all seals and o-rings are gonna be where you start.
