I'm having trouble with my ex500,
first on the list is the idle.
its kinda jumpy, not smooth like it should be, I've rebuilt the carbs, soaked them in carb cleaner sprayed out the idle passages and readjusted the floats.
its better than before but it still has a little jump to it every now and again, I've been turning the idle screws to see what is the best setting and it seems more like 2 1/2 to 3 turns out rather the what the haynes manual says (2 turns out)
Also I'm having slight hesistations in the upper rpm range, I don't think its detenation but I'm not sure, and it only happens at WOT...
I just installed a Jardine exhaust system WITHOUT rejetting the carbs like they say you should, but I wouldn't think that alone would be enough to lean out the motor...
really I have no idea weither my bike is running to rich or to lean.
can you guys point me in the right direction to get these problems solved?
