Running like crap, can you give me an idea or two.....
I just cleaned my carbs and floats. I can get the bike running, and it stays running for a little while, about 5 minutes or so. While I have it running I take it for a little ride around a parking lot and down an alley, by the time I get to the end of the alley and I am slowing down to stop the bike starts to die, acting like it is starving for fuel. Then I can't start it after that. When I get it back to the garage I put it on the charger and I notice that there is about 12 volts on the battery, when before it had almost 16 volts. That makes me think that maybe the problem lies with the Stator.
However, the previous owner removed the exhaust canister (between the two pipes) and put in straight pipes, to make it louder. Because of that, I am not sure if it is the jets causing this problem. I think the jets are stock, not sure.
One more thing, after the battery is fully charged and I start it, it idles fine. After it runs for a little while, it doesn't idle at all.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? Any help woudl be greatly appreciated!!!!
