first bike, no experience, unknowledgable
hi, i just picked up a bike on monday. it is a 1985 kawasaki klr 250 that had been sripped down for flat track racing by the previous owner. first off, i think there is something wrong with the petcock. it barely moves at all. ive noticed a little bit of gas dripping from it. second, i cant figure out which way is on or off on the choke. i cant start it without it pulled up, but when i push it down it instantly dies. last, it runs really boggy once i get it started. i dont know if its me or the bike. ive never been on a motorcycle before.
any help is greatly appreciated.
