My bike are dead :(

Running fine this morning, then on my way home she’s backfiring a lot and died on idle. I got her started again a couple times and slowly got back home. The throttle stops working after about a mile and I have to pull over again to let it die out. I got a hold of my mechanic at least so I’ll have him take a look and see what’s what but now I’m caged.

Ouch! Sorry to hear that. The 500 did something like that and it ended up being a pinched fuel line due to mis routed vacuum lines… had to be under specific conditions to make it happen. Hopefully yours is something that simple.April 25, 2009 at 3:26 am #18016briderdtParticipant
Is the gas tank vent clogged?April 27, 2009 at 4:50 pm #18052
No Idea, I’m a complete dummy with engines. My mechanic said it might just be a clog somewhere. It’s not fuel injected or anything fancy due to its age, so I don’t know about it being a pinched fuel line or something like that. I’ll just have to wait and see.May 12, 2009 at 12:57 pm #18369
I got it back this weekend. After waiting a couple weeks for the mechanic to actually get to mine, he discovered is was the vaccum hose for the petcock, got it replaced and clamped this time and she ran fine again. I went riding all after noon yesterday and the sunrise this morning was outstanding.May 12, 2009 at 2:52 pm #18378MunchParticipant
Congrats!!!!! Glad it was something simple!May 13, 2009 at 5:59 pm #18462
Me too, really wish I knew at least some basics of motorcycle engines so I could fix little stuff like that.
