    My ST has recently had problems starting in the mornings. Its fine when i ride it in the afternoon. First thing in the morning it will start briefly for a few seconds and then die.

    Hi, Does anyone know how to change the choke cable on a 1996 funduro without removing the carbs, as they look impossible to get at! Thanks, Nick. :?

    My F650 funduro has decided it it is only going to run when i have the choke on. I have stripped the carb and found some small flakes of dirt in the float bowls.

    The faq's say that the idle should be 13-1400 rpm, my bike is around this when warm; but, the choke doesn't seem to bring the revs up! Is there any way to check if the choke is working? Thanks. Jim.

    The bike on choke does not seem to rev very highly, Not enough to warm the engine up properly in the morning. Any suggestions? Could it just be the choke cable needs adjusting? Rich

I purchased my bike back in February and may have used the choke once or twice in Feb but haven’t had the need to since...

    For some reason my 650ST has decided it does not like starting on the choke. It starts ok without, but then needs a little bit to keep it ticking over. It otherwise seems to run alright once it has warmed up. I'm going to check the plugs, but can anyone suggest what else I could look at...
