My AJS Raptor Regal 125 motorbike - idle problems. I have just bought the bike and i cant seem to get it to idle properly and the engine keeps cutting out when i let go of the accelerator. How do i solve...


try to clean your carburator..maybe it is full of dirt or rust..but if you cleaned already and the problem is still there,i think you need to replace your carburator..but also check your engine,sometimes the answer of the problem you incountered is that the block need a reboring because it is already lost compression..
