Default Re: Thinking again.....fuel flow/starvation

Could also be the cause of the "float bowl fuel foaming" phenomena.

This happen to me. The bike would run great and hit higher then normal rpms. Then die, but would start right up and run great again. I asked the forum for advice and was told of the foaming, So I tighen the motor mounts and it fixed the problem. Someone said there is no air in the bowl to foam, but there is. It made sence to me. Now starving would just limit your top end and not be that sudden loss of power foaming gives you. I shock some fuel mixed with oil in a glass container and it did foam. These motors can produce finger numbing vibrations.
Always do a pre-ride check. Make it a habit, and ride safe.
