Re: Help! Bike dies while riding
Has anyone completely figured this out yet? I just had this happen today on the way home. Doing 60 on a 3 lane arterial (no shoulders), RPMs in the range of 5k. Got to a slight grade and it dogged, I gave it throttle, it dogged more, went to downshit, done. Coasted to a nearby parking lot. Had gas, tried reserve anyway, nothing. Flipped back to main supply, started up instantly and run just fine the rest of the way home. I'm worried about driving it now.
Thinking I should start with the fuel filter. Bike has around 13,500 on it and who knows when it was changed last. I had the float replaced last year and stored it properly over the winter so I'm sure the carb isn't the problem. You'll have to excuse the ignorance, but can someone give me some general direction to where the fuel filter is? Will I need to remove the tank?
