OK, I adjusted the clutch again. And it still does it. Stalled out braking on the main drag, when slowing down for traffic light backup, a mile from home tonight. It was being a pain starting, so I moved it to the center turn lane and tried from there. Finally got it started, required mucho choke.
Now I’m wondering… I put very high current bulbs in the lights in the back. I noticed when I brake, it actually causes the headlight to dim. Maybe it’s sucking too much juice, causing too much voltage drop for everything else, and causing the ignition to die? I just got back from a 2 hour trip around town, and once it was warmed up, I could brake without worry. Is it electrical or is it engine? Maybe from the riding it charged up the battery enough so that it wasn’t an issue anymore? Maybe my battery is on the fritz?
I’m chasing my tail. Oil level is right on the high mark when it’s warm. I did notice some very fine metal particles in my oil when I changed it. Is that normal or am I entering in “sell it now” territory?
