Hello from la puente ca

Hello everyone. I'm new to the small bike world.
Just got my 2012 2fiddie fired up.
Had to derust the tank and clean the carbs.
Finally have it not leaking fule out the carbs.
I now have it stumbling off idle and stalling.

Hello Jorge, welcome to the board!

Stumbling off idle is a very common problem, usually caused by not fully clean carbs.

The carbs just came out of an overnight soaking in a brand new bucket of Chem dip!
But I can put them in another night!

That's good, but soaking usually won't do the job. Threading a wire through each small passage in the idle circuit can help, as can ultrasonic cleaning.

Jim's dead right. I could never get these 250s to run properly until I went through all the passageways with copper speaker wire. They're like any other carb'd bike... just WAY more sensitive to cleaning!

A person in the city I was born in ! How about that ! HAHAHA
Welcome.
yep stumbling off idle means dirty carbs I don't care if you cleaned them with Kryptonite !, or sent then to Nasa to be repaired...their still dirty !
I found some neet tiny brushes on Amazon for carb cleaning but in the past I usually just used a OXY/Accet. torch tip cleaning tool... which is a little set of wires with file stamped into them... they work great... that and compressed air....
I never had much luck using the DIP method although they do look cleaner on the outside when your done... do a thuro cleaning... every thing that can be removed remove ! and make sure you can get air down each passage. !
I just had to do the same thing to my Ninja and now it runs great when it's warm
make sure you set the airscrews ( I set mine a little rich and it wasn't quite enough)
....
Welcome aboard !
Bob.......
