Good day and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to help you with your problem today. Is the choke stuck/left on? Is/was the air cleaner clean?

choke has been adjusted, dont think left on but maybe out of adjustment i did not do this a buddy did, has new air cleaner, also ran some seafoam cleaner you mix with gas through system while ideling
Motorcycle Mechanic: ...., .... replied 8 years ago
Chokes are usually not adjustable. It is either stuck on or the carb is set up to run too rich. I would turn in the mixture screw 1/2 turn, or more as needed.
