    Default xl 760 dies at longer idling

    Hi my xl 760 idles at approx. 1300 but when idling for a few minutes rpm goes down and engine nearly dies. When i thottle up it takes time til the engine responses. Any idea how to solve that problem?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    I had the same problem on the same machine. Removed the carbs had them rebuilt at a local shop and put them back on. Runs much better now. Also do not run cheap gas ie gas with ethanol. It will eat away at the rubber in the fuel lines and in the carbs. Good luck.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Am using 98 and carbs are rebuilt using stock settings.
    Is the engine too rich or troo lean when this happens? What else can I do to get rid of the symptoms.
