Had that problem last year and it ended up being a loose ground on the engine side... try cleaning up your contacts on the battery and on the motor... every time the sifter cable moved on my engine it would bump the ground.

SOURCE: dies at idle

  1. Carb jets may still be dirty or improperly sized.
  2. The Cam and/or Cam journals are worn down and allowing some play in the timing.(Very common on the XR's)
Sounds more like carb or timing issues to me

The stator could be going,but it doesn't sound like this is your issue.

SOURCE: engine dies when i give it gas, only when cold

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slides back in the throat of the carbs, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together and install the carb. Sync the carbs such that the slides on the carbs move at the same exact instant when the throttle is slowly turned from idle speed. Clean or replace the air filter and install an in-line fuel filter. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.

Hi, after riding through flood water the motor starts but only if no throttle is applied, as soon as you do the engine cuts out.tried some choke and tried idling for enough time to warm up , no...


Water in the carb float bowl? Remove the carb then remove the float bowl. Use spray carb cleaner to clean the carb. Pay special attention to the main jet.

Bike only runs with choke on or giving it throttle, when let off it dies


There are two possible solutions:

1. If you are sure the engine is OK then you can increase the throttle screw to increase idle race. The throttle screw can be found where the throttle wire connects with the carburetor.


2. If the bike is old or if you have not changed the engine oil on time then the bike needs piston ring replacement. This should be done as soon as possible to avoid more engine damage and effect savings on cash.
