  1. Bike Randomly Dies, NEED HELP

    Engine / Exhaust / Cooling
    So the other day i was riding around town and the bike just quits running. It happened several times so far, it seemed like phantom out of gas syndrome so i rebuilt the gas cap, i also replaced the vacuum line for the petcock. I took it for another ride and the bike died by the end of the...
  2. Bike won't start, brand new battery

    Electrical
    Hi guys, Toward the end of last season I got stranded with what I thought was another symptom of POOGS, only this time I was unable to get the bike started again no matter how long an interval between attempts, even the following day long after real POOGS would have cleared. I had previously...

    Carbs and Fuel System

  6. Running rough at cruising speed

    Carbs and Fuel System
    Background: Recent carb cleaning, lots of Seafoam, removed the 2 small red diaphrams in the gas cap and cleared vent lines (after reading about POOGS)... I have easy cold start in the mornings (with Choke ON), smooth idle, smooth and fast acceleration, easy warm start after a drive, but when...
