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.,,,

Honda XR200 Revs up and down while in high rpm and high speeds


Hi, Worldrand if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and cracks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
9. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

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.

1983 kawaski kz100 spectre high idle to keep running


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.

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.
