    GP1300r won't idle

    I'm completely lost.

    Put boyeson reeds in, jet works, tunnel reinforcement, new bars, using oem throttle.

    I got it all put back together today and the skill will turn over and pop but will not idle. I can bring the RPMs up by pulling the throttle and keep it running that way but when I let go of the throttle it dies. Sounds great when it turns over. I'm fairly knowledgable and I am assuming it is something simple but I can't figure out what it is.

    I am getting 01 on the dash.
    I tried new plugs.

    I remember hearing that if the idle is not set perfectly at idle it will not idle. also, could this be a sensor problem?

    Thanks for any and all help. I am free all night if someone can talk me through troubleshooting.

    thanks,
    Ben

    when you installed the reeds did you reinstall the balancer plate??
    It's the plate with the channels between the ports

    yes that went right over the back of the reeds. ross instructed me that the plate would seal with the gaskets at the back of the reeds.

    Did you ever get it to idle? Where is the adjuster on these 1300r's ?

    So do you know how to increase the idle on these 1300 R's. I have one that stalls when you release the throttle

    Ben, did you mess with the idle set screw? My sisters 07' has a low idle and will hardly run on the trailer or in the water.Im going to turn the idle screw in. Might try that.There are no holes in the throttle plates and if they are all the way closed it will idle like crap.

    So basicly you installed new reed petals then replaced everything back that came off correct?
