I took my cousing to show him what its like riding a track and I was getting his bike started and noticed it won't idle. It is a 97 Yamaha RT 100. I cleaned out the air filter and sprayed some carb cleaner in the carb. That helped a little because it will idle somewhat with the choke on. I tried messing with the airscrew but that didn't help much. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Also--is the RT100 a four stroke or is it oil injected? I assumed it was a 4 sroke but I noticed a oil holding tank under the seat and couldn't tell what was in it (engine oil or premix oil).

thanks

Take you carb off, take it apart and clean it. Then put it back together then try that on your bike. Don't forget to check you spark plug.

The RT 100 is a 2 stroke with oil injection. Do not put premix in the gas tank and make sure the oil tank is full of 2 stroke oil.
