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

Opening the gas cap had no effect, nor did holding the primer on the float down. After a short time, it fires right up again and powers up to speed smoothly, but a few minutes later the same slow down and eventual stall out will occur. Scratching my head a bit on this one.
clogged fuel petcock?
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
