air in the fuel lines?!?!
The first time i pulled my engine, got it back together and rode it, about 1-2 miles out, (city driving so about 5-7 mins) the bike lost power, then stalled out... it was a peta to get started... it ended up needing a lil choke, although already warmed up to get her going again... I figured it was a mix of my old battery and some stale gas. tank was almost empty, so i filled her up and gave her a 1/4 bottle of sea foam. Never saw it again..
Pulled the engine again, got her back together and rode off this morning. Same thing. Loss of power, followed by a stall out. same thing, needed a lil choke, and a several blips of the starter to get her going....but i now have a 350 cca battery, so i ruled that out. Also this time as i was starting i noticed that she was trying to (the famed err err err catunka catunka err err sound). Rode the rest of the way to class, and did the same just as i got there (another 5 miles).... no issue on the way back.
Switching to reserve seemed to do nothing, good plugs, battery is good, no vent hoses kinks or plugs, and carb vacume hose at 45 deg.
Leaves me to believe this was just an occurance of air bubbles in the lines? anyone else with this issue?
