The NSR is a 2 stroke, so it needs 2 stroke oil as well as petrol. This is the reason they are known as "Stinkwheels". If the engine is run without oil in the mix it will seize. As the oil provides lubrication to the moving parts. You should also check the spark plugs are clean, they can oil up in a 2 stroke, especially if the engine is used a lot at low revs.
Is your choke on when this happens? Using any kind of choke will cause the bike to rev higher than normal.
The knob that you can see protruding from one side of the bike is the idle control. If you've never messed with it before, there shouldn't be a need to seriously adjust it now, but that's not saying that someone else hasn't touched it.
OK, there should be a warmed up idle adjustment on this bike on the carbs under the tank (like my 1985 Honda Interceptor). Maybe it's set too high. On my bike the screw has a knob on it for easy adjustment.
On the Kawasaki motorcycles I'm ot sure if they had this feature.
But, if they don't, then a screwdriver should be enough to turn the idle adjustment screw.
You carburator needs cleaning, or needs to be adjusted. Do you have fresh gas in the tank? Did you mess with the jets, or any adjustments on the carb? You're just not getting enough gas when you open the throtle, and having the Choke on will give you more gas.
My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick
pull the choke out fully, start the engine, push choke into halfway if it will still run, let it warm for a min or 2. ride it, it may need choke still for about a mile. but thats trial and error, try pushing it in, you will find out right away if the bike still wants it.
i have an owners manual on this bike if you need a copy e-mail me email@example.com
hey apparently and did are two different stories draining the float bowls and cleaning the carbs are two different things the fact that the choke dosent change suggest the carbs are stopped up after sitting for 1 year clean the carbs let them soak in carb cleaner and blow them out with high pressure air, keep notes of the adjustments befor you dissasemble them (air screws)
I am having a similiar problem. bmw r 1100 s will only start with full choke and will die if I cut off choke or give it any throttle. This is my first bike and it has been sitting in a garage for 2 years. I took out the carbs, cleaned them and rebuilt them. I didn't find any residual in the carbs and they were very clean. Today, I was able to get the bike running and took it down the neighborhood but after the bike warms up it idles at 6K! Man... If I can't find any answers from this forum, I will probably drop it off at the motorcycle shop just down the hill from me. Any suggestions anyone? I think I will try to drain the fuel and give it new gas. But still....
