I am a newbie, to this forum. Have been trying to learn what I can from it. I purchased my '04 750, this March. I changed all the fluids and had new tires put on. Here's my question - can POOGS happen with 3/4 tank of gas? Background: Bike ran great to work, this morning. Left work, this afternoon. Bike started fine. Sat through two stop lights, then hit the highway. It started to lose power. I headed toward the shoulder, when the power came back. It lasted a mile then died. I didn't know about taking the gas cap off, until now. Had it towed home. Tried starting it. At first it wouldn't start, then it finally did. Temp gauge was normal. Temp outside was 95. Also, problem seem to start after some strong wind gust. Might be just a coincidence. Total time 7 minutes, maybe 5 miles, at the most.
Where would you start the troubleshooting?
