Default Re: engine problem

weird. mine did that once, and only once. took off down the driveway and it wouldn't start. after the third or fourth try, i was looking at everything wondering why, and saw gas flowing out of my exhaust. i figured it got flooded somehow, so i just had to pedal all the gas out of it.

there's a nice big church parking lot next to me, so i just kept riding and dumping the clutch, pedaling through as it tried to start, till it finally did.

then, when i stopped at the store, there was still a little bit of gas dripping out, and smoking. seriously thought my bike was gonna start on fire, but it didn't.

never happened again.
