cold start idle not working? idle cable not working
2 issues here
firstly when starting the bike the cold idle adjuster that kicks in for about 15-30sec doesnt work. the bike starts up at normal idle and just stays there. why could the cold start idle adjuster not be working? i dont really need it just a issue i was trying to fix..
secondly whilst playing about with the idle adjuster it was a bit tight so i gave some wd40 hoping to lubricate the adjuster wheel/cabling etc but as i played about with it i winded it for what seems ages (1 min) nothing was happening, so i took off and then come the set of lights next placed in neutral the bike stopped, no fuel/idle. so when i pulled to the side of the road trying to readjust back to normal it keeps just cutting out on me.
so what way am i meant to turn it to increase idle? clockwise? and i did turn it as far as possible both ways but it just cutts out no matter what and no high revs, i can hold the throttle on to keep the bike going but once i let go it just stalls :(
im hoping i didnt break the cable or anything that goes to the adjuster under the tank..but lets saY i did then for the moment what will i have to do to readjust it?
and whats a decent rpm for idle 1200??
