Gadday, backyard mech techs!
Fired up the drz4hundy the other day only to find she wouldn't idle when I shut off the choke! I sent it anyways cause she ran at high revs! From my limited knowledge im guessing bloked jets?any thoughts would be appreciated 👍🏻

I had that same situation a couple of years ago. Tried a Motul fuel additive first - no good. They just don't work.
Being short of time back then, I took it to a local Suzuki mech and at first he tried washing the carby out in a sonic bath etc. but still wasn't idling well, after giving it a short test ride at the mechanic's place.
So, finally the mech removed the carby, pulled it apart, cleaned it, and put in a new seals, etc, kit.
No problems since.
Finally, I tend to ride it pretty regularly now too. If they're sitting for too long, I believe then there's the possibility of fuel residue "gumming up" some of the jets and fuel pathways within the carby.
All the best with it.
