Ok well just today i started up the bike, let it sit for a little bit, and i noticed that it was idleing a little low, so i turned the adjuster just a little bit to the right and it dident do anything.. I turned the bike off and tried to start it but it wont start, and now the adjuster wont turn in either direction.. Any ideas?

match and a gas can

or you pull the tank and find where the cable screws into the throttle bodies and see what happened

Hold the throttle wide open to start it. That will keep you from flooding the bike.

I've heard of the adjusters breaking... the only way to fix it is go under the tank and check it out.

when you lift it off... go ahead and unbolt the fuel line... it's a pain trying to balance the tank on the frame while working on it... It will spill a little fuel but it won't drain the entire tank... just a small stream for a few seconds.

turn it to the left instead. left = higher idle, right = lower idle. it requires a lot of force to turn it because it's made not to turn easily with the wind etc... so you may think it's stuck but it's really not. turn it HARD to the left.

yeah i just went back out and tried a pair of vise grips on it and it wont budge... it just cures up the rubber tubing.

OK heres a picture of what im looking at


the piece that is circled is screwed in all the way ( all of the threads are showing out the back) so im guessing that is keeping the idle way to low for the bike to start, i can not get it to turn with the adjuster, because it is to tight i assume, but is there any way i can turn the actual piece itself? There is no way i can get my fingers in there and there is not enough room to turn a pair of needle nose pliers..

dude- turn the adjuster HARDER! if the red circle in your picture is still connected IT'S FINE! don't do more work than you need to! like i said, that adjuster can SEEM like it's stuck, but in actuality it's not, it just need to be turned VERY hard. and remember, left makes the idle higher, and right makes the idle lower. you want 1300 rpm +/- 100 rpm according to the service manual. i run mine at 1400 cuz it gives a nice smooth pulse at that speed. it may also be a good idea to sync your starter valves while you're at it. that will make your idle silky smooth like a brand new bike. i synch mine at least every 8000.

give it a little gas as you turn it over ^^. as for the starter valves, you'll need a manometer and you'll need to clamp your PAIR hoses if you haven't already blocked them off. it may be more trouble than it's worth, it's just a suggestion, i do it cuz i have a manometer and i have the block off plates installed on my PAIR valves so it's easy. i also like to have the silky idle. remember that when you set the idle- set it at normal operating temp 170-190 fahrenheit or so.

i got a bike charger for it, i let it charge for a while and i get the green light, so i know the batter is good to go. did i maybe flood the bike? im pretty sure i have everything connected right, i can hear the fuel pump prime, and it cranks but it just will not start...

I have never tried this... so it's only an idea. Starter fluid seems to work even if you put in a little or a lot. So it seems to work no matter what to get a motor running at least for a few seconds. ( I'm guessing it would work for a flooded motor) If you can get the motor to start even only for a few seconds... it should blow out the extra fuel and give you a nice puff of black smoke. Then the obvious desired result is an engine that's not flooded and running.

Just an idea... I don't think it will hurt anything but if someone has a better idea... chime in.
