After I rejet with MCcarb.com kit, the bike started and idled fine. I didn’t even need to have the choke out a notch.

I went for quick spin and noticed that my idle seemed a little high so I adjusted it.

That’s when things started going bad, now the bike will not idle unless I have the choke almost fully out. No matter how much I turn the idle knob I can’t seem to get the idle to change.

Everything else seems fine,the bike runs great on throttle. Now I don't know
if something with the rejet went bad or could there be somthing wrong with
the idle adjuster?

I double checked o-ring so I sure thats not the problem.

When I was reassembling the needle I could not get white plastic piece that sits on top of the needle to stay in place. Could that also be why I can’t adjust the idle?

marked for info. Did you block main air jet ? I think that is what is called. I have to go look.

A normal rejet doesn't need the air jet plugged. Just a stage 3 where you are putting on Thunder Mfg air kits that flow much more air than just the K&N.

Your needle is probably not snapped in tight is why it isn't wanting to idle.

The needle shouldn't be affecting the idle circuit, if its not in right, it may be letting fuel blow by. Also. did you adjust the mixture screw?

Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't sure, I guess I should have kept quiet. :? :oops:
