Question about 2005 Enfield Military
I recently bought a brand-new '08 Military
And I absolutely love it (aside from the broken headlight!) but I was wondering what the deal was with the seeming variations of paint finishes on the Military bikes? Mine and many others that I see have the flat olive drab finish, while there are others that I see with a very glossy finish, and in some cases, pinstripes. What's the deal with the variances -- are the glossy finishes and pinstripes the result of custom modifications? Also -- huge problem while riding. I know she's a brand-new bike (only 25 miles) so there are probably some break-in kinks that need to be ridden out, but this bike dies on me all the time. Unless I'm CONSTANTLY giving the bike throttle, it'll just die. Whenever I go to stop at a stop sign and am in first gear, the moment that throttle is let go, the bike just dies. It seems like I have to constantly pull the throttle on the bike to keep her running, it just does NOT want to idle. Also been noticing some small problems in shifting -- never seems to shift as smooth as other bikes I've been on, and I'm not sure if this is because it's a brand-new bike, or just older technology -- I'm totally new to all of this so I'm really not sure. Any ideas?,The shifting gets smother within 1000 miles, I have 1300 miles and rarely have any false neutrals or as clunky shift problems any more. Like Scotty said give the throttle screw a turn to increase idle( should turn by hand located on the carburetor). I did have a loose carburetor to cylinder head(jug) rubber boot loosen on me and was leaking air making the idle rough on my bike .After I repositioned the boot back on and tighten the clamp at the carburetor I never had the problem return.,,,
