Hi All,
I am a new Australian member. Have a CB125e. Purchased this bike the other day. Engine runs ok but refuses to idle. Will idle reasonably with choke about 80% on.
Everything else seems to work ok on the bike. Any suggestions or pointers as to what the issue might be would be most appreciated.
thank you.

If you have to use the choke after the bike is completely warmed up, it sounds like you have a carb issue. But have you tried to adjust the idle up?

Thank you for your reply re my issue. Yes I have tried adjusting the idle. It appears to me that I am not getting enough fuel at idle, so yes, carby issue. Will remove the carby and blow out passages. See how I go.

Welcome aboard, have you tried running a carb cleaner like seafoam through it?
