KLX 140L Sputters and Stalls

I have an '08 KLX 140L that has started sputtering and will die if left idling. I have to keep it revved up to keep it running. It has very few miles and is just driven around on trails. I have drained the gas tank and run seafoam through it. I have not made any adjustments to the carb. This just started happening. Any suggestions?

I just bought a 2010 klx140l and he does the same. I didn't had time to check this out, but if you find some tricks let me know.

13 - 8 = 5, yes, I have, count them, and very little mileage. If I drained my gas bowl every time I stopped playing in the dirt, I wouldn't be having someone suggest I take off the carb and dip it in vinegar.

Well crap in the brass, I don't have time for this. Well then sell it or do the work.

At least buzydau is a troll withistory. Buzy is his name with those posts he toasts or boasts

Known to be at tech thread abuser. I like lying to animals too.
