    Rough idle...

    Good day hawk brothers! Regrettably I am in need of some assistance. So I just switched out my fuel pump and fuel floater. I also did a quick oil change to the recommended 10w30. Now when I go to fire it up, she sounds good at first, but then she begins to putter, not really enough to stall but close. I went down the street today, and it was quite challenging to get up to 23mph(2nd gear). When I released the throttle, she almost immediately stalled. Start her up again with barely a tap on the electric start. I adjusted the throttle ever so slightly to see if it would self fix, but I'm not really trying to idle at 2500rpm. I'm thinking, that even though my new pump is operating, it is not operating properly. Fuses are all good. 2019 hawk dlx 250. TIA..

    Did you adjust the floats? Clean the jets?

      sounds alot like only one cylinder is working

      check for equal heat on both headers. sometimes a problem like that can be fixed simply by replacing spark plugs.

        No jets. And if it's running on 1 cylinder then it's running on all cylinders.

        This is a Hawk DLX 250: An EFI 250cc single cylinder Chinese made Amazon special.
