    Sounds like the choke is stuck on, or the high idle cam is not rotating to the slow idle position

    get full insurance, and since you live in Lynn leave it parked on the street for a little bit. Problem fixed and you get a check coming to you to buy another gixxah.

    Back to the Gixxer..one question I have is how can you sync the carbs if the idle is screaming? You gotta let the engine warm up before you try to sync them. I thinky you messed up somewhere....

    Re: gixxxah help

    Did you change out the gas? A long shot, but still a variable.

    When you cleaned the carbs - did you take them completely apart and make sure all the internal machined passages are clean, or just take the jets out? And - Are you sure they're back together right, seated in the boots, everything works smoothly?

    Is it just revving high, or revving with smoke?

    A quick check for air leaks on the intake side - while it's warming up, and at lower rpm's carefully spray a little carb clean (it can eat paint, and is flammable - so be careful) on the intake boots, sides of the carb, etc - and listen for a change in the way the motor runs.

    A lot of shops have ultrasonic cleaning tanks - it's usually about $50 or so to drop off the carbs to have them done.

    Sounds like an air leak. Carb to manifold or carb to airbox.
