TS 185 idling issues

I just picked up a 1971 Suzukie TS 185. It runs great, except for the fact that it wont idle. Ive cleaned the carburetor, and changed the spark plug and it still wont idle. Any suggestions on whats wrong or what I should do next?

Thanks

No-Clue.

Double check the Choke Circuit.

The CCI Oil injection needs to be working correclty too or it might not last long.
Just mentioning in case it has been sitting.

Don't know

Google it, or Google TS185 Suzuki service manuals.
Maybe it has a ignition cut off if its not right I just do not know

I have heard of bikes with CCI from that error sitting long time then not lasting long few minutes or so once finally fired up, because the CCI was either not working or the oil was to old or the resivor was empty.


Kawasakis for that time frame were similar.

You have a neat find there so you would just want to be sure you got it right.

I had a Suzuki TC 100 back around 1973 first new bike so mine was not a issue just had to check the resivor every now and then.

Good Luck

I think those bikes had something called a reed valve.
Funtioned like a quick operating check valve allowing the fuel into the crankcase and subsquently into the piston ports.

If that has gone bad maybe that could be a cause for poor idling.

Again I do not know just thinking back.
