The 1st thing is the bike will not start with the choke. It starts and runs beautifully without however as soon as I stick the choke on it borks out and dies. I have had the carb in bits (after one of the floats stuck) and cleaned it all out with carb cleaner but this has made no difference. SORTED! THANKS!
Next question is my gears can be very hard to select sometimes when stationary. This doesn't always happen but occasionally it will not change gear at all. I have changed the gearbox oil twice in 2 rides to see if that was the problem. But still the same. ALSO SORTED!
Thirdly. My rear brake bites a bit far down the pedal and is a tad spongy. There's definitely a small amount of air in the system and needs bleeding. I tried to bleed it through the conventional way with a piece of pipe on the nipple but this made matters worse. I then bled from the bottom up and it got a bit better but still not brilliant. Is there a technique that's well suited for these? ALSO SORTED!
Any help much appreciated.
Edit: After sorting the above issues out i decided to take a look at the engine kill switch which has never worked. Turns out there's only one wire connected to it... Has anyone got a wiring diagram for the 03 250 i could take a look at? Or perhaps just a photo of the wires it goes into? The one that it's plugged into at the moment is black and white. I understand i am looking for a fully black wire coming from the regulator (according to a wiring diagram of a different model is this correct?) But i cannot find such a wire.
