I have a 2002 ZX-6R that will only start with the choke on (cold or hot) and will not run with the choke off. Checked idle adjustment and it has little to no effect. Any tips before I break into this thing would be greatly appreciated.
when the choke is open(on) does it run normally or does it feel bogged down?
If its running bogged down you might have bad fuel, water in the tank/carbs.
If it seems to run OK when the choke is open/on, you might have either an obstruction in the air system(like a really dirty air filter) or your idle speed might be set to low.
