    1990 X-2 Tuning Question

    Bought an X2 in CO at altitude. Took it to Iowa, basically sea level. Idles well in water but dies with throttle. All stock except West Coast exhaust. Please help!

    Did you ride the machine while in Colorado? If not how do you know if it even ran there?

    The correct fuel mixture for Colorado would be too lean for sea level.

    Open the High and Low Speed Screws about a 1/4 turn. Then fine tune from there.

    Now I'm struggling to get it to run at all after the fuel for the primer runs out. Looks like there may be air in the fuel lines. This is still out of the water.

    It may have been re-jetted for higher elevation, you may need to re-jet.
