Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

My fuel stop is shot and just feeds fuel all the time, so I get this problem all the time, Good luck, and remember have fun. Dave

That's the thing, I hadn't left it long, it had been running just the day before. I tried no throttle, half, WOT, and all three with choke, and she just wouldn't start. I made sure the choke lever hadn't come loose, and that the spark plug wire was on tight, and then I had to go to work. I'll try it again in the morning, and go from there.

Edit, btw, I rode up and down my street for a good five straight minutes trying all throttle and choke combinations, then checking the lever and giving up to make it to work on time.
