Hey guys my buddy just bought a 05 GS500 and we seem to be having a little trouble with it. Its has been laid down and there is some damage to the plastics and stuff. He said the bike fired up and idled well yesterday. However today we went out there and started it up, and the bike won't idle. We got it fired up and it ran but it won't idle. It will stay running if you keep the throttle pulled a little. but as soon as you let it go it dies. The choke doesn't seem to operating at all. It doesn't change the way the bike runs. It doesn't seem to run any diffrent on full choke or no choke. The choke is up on the handle bar and seems to have sustained some damage but if the choke is damaged it should still run right once its warmed up right. (I guess if the choke was stuck on it wouldn't run well but then it should run right when its cold and the choke is needed, which it doesn't) could this just be an idle issue? We did finally get the bike to idle but it was a REALLY low idle and was on the verge of dying all the time, and it would only idle for a little while then die. Should we just turn up the idle and if so where would it be located on that bike. Also could that be sign of other problems? I don't know much about wrenching on bikes but the dealership is BOOKED right now (which is normal for this time of year I know) So if possible we would like to get her running better ourselves. Any suggestions would be great.
