Bike has been sitting for only 2 months. Will start with choke on, running around 3500-4500 rpms. Once I take the choke off, it immediately dies. Also when it is running with the choke on, a slight roll...


This is probably a blocked idle jet in the carb, caused by standing and fuel gumming the jets up. The jet that the choke uses will allow it to run, but go to normal running and the idle jet is failing. You MIGHT get away with emptying the tank and getting some (expensive) fuel antifreeze (This is ethol alchohol they use in race cars) run through the bike. It might just melt the gumk and clean things out. If it doesn't, then its probably carb off and strip time :-(

Just picked up this 1996 GPZ 1100 ABS. Starts ok with full choke but does not idle. Need to keep the choke on to keep the bike running. Once I close the choke the bike does not idle. Checked for air...


It sounds like the carbs are gummed up from sitting. The fuel that we get now is very unstable and gums up quickly. When you choke the bike it is bypassing the carbs and that is why it runs. I would suggest a carb clean and fuel tank flush, the carbs are very intricate and should only be worked on by a qualified technician.
Thanks,
Steve

Sounds like the idle circuit in the carb is restricted. The engine is running on the choke only. When the engine reaches a certain temp the fuelthat does get is more readily burned allowing you to back off the choke. The choke probsbly can't be completely opened? right? Fuel quality is also something to consider Oil content in fuel affects combustion temps and volatility. _good luck_Ned_

Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast


first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.

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
