Hello. I have at last bought another XR600. I owned one in 1988, wanted another. I have had an XR400 for 15 years.
The XR600 has a mikuni flat slide carb fitted. Are these better than the standard. I have a the standard carb also.
The bike is hard to start unless left alone for a while. The bikes stalls with a phhhttt, sound after running for a few minutes. Is a bitch to restart. Im wondering, if this is a carb related issue, the bowl emptying or as I have seen in other threads that the mikunio is a 'pump' carb. Is this failing to work. The bike will be serviced, just wondering if I should dump the mikuni carb. All help appreciated. Im missing electric start, realising kick starting a big thumper bike is much harder work when you are older !!
