Re: reason behind turning the fuel petcock off?
I'm happy to find out I'm not the only person in the world that felt a little silly over a petcock or a choke. With the choke, If it won't stay tight, I just take it off. I live in California and it hardly ever gets all that cold. But if it ever gets so cold I need a choke I'm probably not riding my bike anyway.
And yeah, Same thing. Check plug, Check wires, Have a smoke, ect, ect.
I DID remember to check the petcock though.LOL.
