    TW Runs With Choke

    Good evening, before I tear apart the carb and do a thorough clean, thought I would see if anyone has any ideas. Here’s what I have.

    Just picked up a 2017, 45 miles on odometer. It’s clearly been sitting in a garage for awhile.

    Bike starts first push cold with choke on. Once warm push choke in to half choke, idles fine, but if I give it some throttle, immediately dies. Also immediately dies when choke pushed completely off. Bike will run when on full choke, I took it for a quick cruise around the neighborhood.

    Any help with simple things to check before a full carb clean and rebuild greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, I’ll take my answer off air👍.

    Welcome to The Forum! Try a very strong dose of seafoam. Give it some time to work as you ride it around.

    Dump the old gas out now and put in new fresh gas, ethanol free if you can find it.

    Following...I too have the same issue. Runs/idles best with the choke on full. When the choke is in the off/half position and I roll on the throttle it bogs down and dies. I will give Seafoam a shot...

    Lucas deep clean fuel system cleaner works better than Seafoam, but you can't find it everywhere. I've felt a difference with that stuff within a mile or two. It has saved me from having to open carburetors more than once...

    Yeah, I’ve got some Sea Foam in the tank, maybe I’ll add some more. Thanks for your help.

    3 or 4 oz should do it.

    If it doesn't work, unfortunately the carburetor will have to come apart. Pay very close attention to the pilot jet. All the little holes have to be spotless.

    No amount of magic will fix the problem. you will need to remove the carb and clean out the jets and carb body. There is a plug over the needle screw that will need to be carefully drilled then removed with a wood screw. combustion chamber cleaner will remove any of the deposits on the jets and make them look like new again. You just have to make sure that it does not soak any of the rubber parts. To clean out the carb is not that hard to do and will save you the many hours of grief of trying to avoid the inevitable
