Take it in to your local dealer have them recalibrate the TPS (throttle position sensor). It costs one hour labor at the dealer. What they do is bring it up to 315 degrees shut it down zero the TPS voltage, reset it to between 5.2-5.8 volts, then they start it back up and set the idle at 1100rpm.That should take care of your problem. Unless you have a intake leak or something mechanical.,,,

1983 kawaski kz1100 spectre high idle to keep running


When a bike is run you get a small build up of rubbish in the carbs, this can block the idle jets. So a carb clean should solve your problem. Nice to see older bike still being used. Beware of mad "cagers" and keep it rubber side down.

Have you cleaned the tank, fuel can cause steel to rust, drain carbs and blow the jets out. Then make sure you change (or fit) the in line fuel filter, they are cheap and easy to replace and save problems like this.

Cutting out at idle


the batery is ok if the engine start avery time. Also the volts are ok.
Have you made any modifications on it? Sport exhaust, sport air filter?
Check also the air filter. Make sure is clean...
Idle speed should be around 1000-1200 rpm. You should have a screw to fix the idle speed. Check it on the carburetors area, or download the manual from internet.

Cheers.

Last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR 10 SECONDS ON HIGH THEN MOVED TO MEDIUM CHOKE FOR 4 THEN TOOK OFF AT NO CHOKE. 2 WEEKS LATER. I started up bike Choke on high bike barely wanted to idle...


Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck

High idle when the bikes hot.


You either need to clean and adjust the carbs on it, or you have a vacuum leak somewhere.

Sounds like you need the carbs cleaned and synchronized, then the idle set once the bike warms up. May also have a cracked intake boot, or a vacuum line off.

1991 CR 500 (reving to high on idle high serges)


take some wd 40 & spray around the carb boot while running to see if the idle drops for a few seconds. sounds like you have an intake side air leak causing a lean condition making the motor rev high.
