Stalled mid-ride and wouldn't re-start
Sorry to litter this forum up, I jumped on a thread already but figured I'd start a new one.
I was riding my 93 K75 after replacing the clutch cable. Had sat a few days, but ridden 30 miles an hour before this trip, still fairly warm.
20mph going around a turn and the bike stalls, lights still on. No bucking like fuel, I heard the engine die and I clutched to a stop.
Wouldn't re-start, tried with choke, let it sit for 10,20,60 minutes and retried. Starter motor is turning freely, I hear the fuel pump whirring after start button is released, and I feel pulsing on the aft fuel line feeding the rail.
I'm about to get into it today and just wanted some more advice on things I should be checking, (im gunna hope its a clogged fuel filter)
but fuel light should be working as it lit on sidestand and did not while I was pushing down the block. Checked computer connnection should be good. Could there be a connection issue with coils where starter still functions?
Panhandling on Brooklyn Bridge for a spare clutch plate.
