SV Idling Weird

Hi Motohouston,

I have a SV650s that has been idling kinda low for some reason and I'm having to adjust the idle adjuster a bit often. It kind of idles almost to the point it cuts out (I guess) but the bike runs fine after it warms up and gets going. I'm just a bit worried is there something I may need to check or replace that's causing it idle weird whenever start the bike. Thanks for any info or advice.

Time for a plug or filter change? Clogged injectors?

Hmm, I never thought about the injectors. I'll check the plugs and swap out the filter too see if it improves. If not, I'll check the injectors. Thanks Crossfits.

I don't think you have injectors since your bike is carbureted. However, you might want to make sure all is kosher with your carbs since it's been sitting. Possibly your fuel tank as well. But yes, CF is right on about the plugs and air filter.

Get the bike to operating temperature, then set your idle to 1300RPM +/- 100 and see if that helps. Don't do it when the engine is cold, though, or you'll be chasing your tail.

It's fuel injected.

Cool

"Solracer wins the prize! K4 and up SV's are fuel injected!"

Seriously, thanks everyone for the tips. I'll start playing around with the bike and give updates on the progress. I'm trying to get this thing track ready for the summer.
