SOURCE: bike only starts with choke on and wont idle

If your bike ran good previously - and nothing has been changed that would require rejetting or a needle adjustment, I would look for problems elsewhere. Such as:
Has the bike been stored for more than a few months at a time? If so, the carburetor jets could be plugged with fuel varnish. Only being able to start with the choke applied - and an inability to idle are both classic symptoms of this. Remove and disassemble the carburetor. Clean it and the jets out with carb cleaner and compressed air, then reassemble. Also make sure the fuel in the tank is fresh and that the fuel strainer (usually with the fuel petcock) is clean.
There are three ingredients required for combustion: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). So long as you've got each of these - it has got to run.

Accelerating from idle, bogs down, slowly increases revs while nursing throttle to full power, fuel tank is clean, please advice on possible causes..... thanx a Million.


I'd start by making sure the air filter is clean and then get any info available regarding valve cam clearances. Depending on the hours and milage on the machine there may be the need for some maintenance.
