hi guys this is my rs 50 bought as a project as i love the bike but idle sounds horrific, other than that everything else i can fix :) i am eager to do this myself as i really love bikes and would appreciate any info you can give me on why its making this noise.

The way it reacts is follows:
1. when i start it it must be on choke or it will not idle
2. it makes that horrible rattle noise, and also does it when its in gear on low rpms feels kinda grindy
3. if i let the rpms fall below 1.5 the rattle seems to stop it engine turning over and it dies
4. however as you see in the video it stops when you hit 2000 rpms and sounds fine its just low revs :/

as i said any info would be great, i will stop talking now :P
