New Owner - 650 throttle problem?
I have only owned one other bike, a Honda Rebel for about 2 months...4 years ago. So I pretty novice at motorcycles.
I bought a 2000 V-Star 650 Model XVS65.
It started right up, took it around the block and out onto some larger streets. Shifted well, loved it. No knock, no jerking, smooth ride.
On the way back home, after purchasing it I noticed something very odd.
When the choke is pulled out, I can come to a complete stop. Pull in the clutch, roll of the throttle and have no problems.
However, if I push the choke in and pull in the clutch and roll of the throttle the engine seems to shut off.
I can come to a stop and keep a little throttle on and she is fine, nothing happens. But as soon as I let go, with the clutch squeezed tight, she turns off, but will start right up again with the switch and a little throttle.
I am going to take it as soon as I can just for general inspection and cleanup, however I am curious if anyone knows what the cause of this issue could be?
Thank you for the help, I look forward to being a rider of this bike for sometime.
