Hey guys just wondering what I should do, or anything to help my problem.

When riding around the city my bike doesn't like to idle at stop lights, my bike likes to just shut off while waiting at a stop light unless I keep the revs up. I'm guessing my idle is to low. It weird it doesn't have a problem in neutral, but when you have it in first gear and take of it shuts off sometimes.

Also, another problem I'm having in the city is my bike doesn't like cruising at the same speed in 3rd or lower, or around 35mph or lower. It feels like it stops giving power and then comes back on. It's a jerking motion.

Any ideas on what do to or to check would be great!

Thanks guys!

sounds like something in the pilot circuit. I would check your pilot jet for obstructions (it controls idle to 1/4 throttle). Make sure that your fuel screw is adjusted correctly and the jerking/hesitation could also come from the throttle position sensor on the carb. If you need any specific advice feel free to PM me.

Like Crash said, pilot sounds clogged. Losen the clamps, twist your carb in its boots in order to take off the float bowl. From there you will see the pilot jet. Take it out and you can use a piece of wire to clean it. Spray it down with carb cleaner and reassemble.

Also, check your clutch play for the none idle while in gear but will in neutral.

My crf had the same problem with the idle, I tore the carb apart and found nothing. It turned out my clutch basket fingers were grooved and wouldn't let the plates separate.

Search on Thumpertalk. I seem to recall a play by play with pics somewhere over there.

Tried searching for that play by play no luck, maybe I'm just retarded lol.

I have a service manual that tells me how to at least take it off.

Do I really need to take off the whole carb to clean or inspect it, or is it possible to leave on to see if it is actually my problem?

Yes, the carb needs to come out. PM me and I can walk you through it.
