I just aquired a 2001 kinetic TFR. It has about 100 miles. the guy i bought it from hardly used it stored it with the tank drained for most of its life.
she ran beautifully the first few days but then the trouble began. I have changed the sparkplug, the fule filter, and cleaned the air filter. It ran great again, then bad again. After adjusting the idle and the throttle it seemed good but now it is backfiring and feels like it is not getting any gas at intervals.
it goes POW, no gas, vroom vroom (normal for a second), then POW no gas. Usually adjusting the screw on the carb (idle right?) will ensure that even if i stalled it will start again and get me home. i think the carb is clean. it still has only about 200 miles on it. any suggestions would be appreciated.
also, is it normal for the lights to dim when i break or let off the gas?
