GPR 1200 idles high
Just put rebuilt engine in 02 GPR. Starts and runs but engine runs at 5000 rpm at idle. If you choke it the rpms will come down. Everything seems to be adjusted correctly. I was wondering if I had an air leak. Any suggestings? Any help would be great.

Yes you could have an air leak, but before we go there I have to ask the basic question. Forgive me if this sounds funny, but have you worked to reduce your idle adjustment screw on your carburetors?

Got it fixed, idle screw was turned in when i adjusted the throttle cable. Idles perfectly now. Sorry for the dumb question. This is my first ski, I bought it with a bad motor and tried to fix it myself. I first rode one last summer and I had the itch to own one right away. Way better than any of the dirt bikes, four wheelers, and snowmobiles I've had. I've been soaking up your guys' knowledge on here for the past few weeks while I waited for parts. This is a great site and i hope to contribute some. I just wish I would have read the posts on SBT before I ordered my engine from them. The service was great and everything showed up on time so we'll see how it runs. It should run circles around the 95 Kawasaki ZXi 750 I aquired while I was trying to fix the GPR. These things sure are addicting! Lots of fun but lots of work. (AND $$)
