Re: Engine and carb trouble
Well, it's probably fuel related but have you checked the coils? These bikes are notorious for bad coils.
One last thing to check when it dies on you or you can't keep it idling is to pop the fuel cap and see if you've got a vacuum, meaning that the breather isn't doing its job.
