I know this comes up often but just happened top me yesterday.
Was idling waiting for road construction, bike just died. Started right up then died again. Started again then took off. After that the fueling was like there was choke on, no power, sluggish. Then the engine would get full power for awhile then rode ok at speed for awhile. But after a stop the bike ran poorly again till got it home.
Is this fuel chip problem? Wondered about the gas too, almost like water in fuel too. But I get gas from same station all the time, Chevron 94 no ethanol.
I bought this bike with 68,000km on it. Have put almost 5000km so far with no issues till now.
Any thoughts appreciated.
