Hey guys, I'm in need of some tech help. Having a problem with my bike staying started. Seems like it's running out of gas. Flushed tank, carbs, new filter, and new fuel pump. Might be plugs... any ideas, anyone in the Hampton roads Virginia area? Please help guys, tring to save some money here.......thanks
when it is running does it run smoothly...or does it sound like its only on three cylinders...
as you've checked all your fueling...i'm with you...ignition system needs checking...
take each plug out and check for a spark...check the gaps while your at it....maybe replace the plugs...
are the HT cables in good condition..? one might be broken..?
check the colour of the deposits on the plug...if not a light brown colour it looks like your fueling maybe out..(worn needles in the carb??)
what colour is the inside of the exit of your exhaust pipe...this should have a light brown colour to it as well
Have you tried the gas cap trick, yet? Ride the bike with an extra key in your gas cap, and as soon as the bike starts running like crap, open the cap. If the bike starts running normally again, the vent in the gas cap, or one of the gas tank vent lines is blocked, and needs to be cleared.
I didn't do it, I swear.
And even if I did, what makes you think I would admit it to you?
Whats up guys...tried the gas cap trick...no avail, I think it's the plugs because when it is running it sounds like crap, ya know "chunka..chanka..chunka" I went to purchased new plugs today, but my slow ass let my credit card at home. Didn't have time to go back because I had to work tonight. But Hopefuly I'll be rideing tomarrow. I'll be sure to look for the color of the deposit. Thanks guys
