Here's an experiment for someone who has a CRF in a warm area that likes to stall when the throttle is allowed to slam shut and the bike rolls to a stop. Fiddle with the adjuster on the cable to the point where the idle is slightly elevated....go out and see if the bike still stalls. If it no longer stalls, then "idle speed setting" via the throttle stop is a fix of sorts. But I think thoroughly studying the service manual is essential. Mine's on order...when it arrives? Who knows!
just looked in the throttle operation section..to sum it up breifly..the adjustments at the bars are the minor adjustments and the adjustments down below are the major adjustments on the throttle cable.....something to consider and try, but just to cold for me right now...Thanks Ed
