ITS LIKE READING WAR AND PEACE.
JUST DID A FOUR HOUR SEARCH AND CAME UP WITH ALL THIS STUFF. BLUE WIRE, BAD GAS,USING A PLASTIC GAS CAN?, WINTER GAS NEED RACE GAS, NEED HOTTER PLUG,JETING, COIL, AIR SCREW ,STARTING(DRILL)ACCELERATOR PUMP BK MOD, VENT TUBE, CARB NOT CENTERED AND NOT CLEANED,
OILY AIR FILTER, TO MUCH MOTOR OIL, I THINK MY BIKE HAS ONE OR ALL OF THES PROBLEMS OR IT JUST HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN.
I WILL FIND OUT ON SATURDAY WHEN I PICK IT UP AT THE DEALER. MY WIFE TALKED TO THEM ON THE PHONE AND THEY MENTIONED ACCELERATOR PUMP? I JUST HOPE I DONT HAVE THE SAME PROBLEMS THAT FEW HAD IN 01. SOME OF THOSE TOPICS GO ON FOR MONTHS ,I WOULD HAVE THOUGH 02s WOULD HAVE WORKED THIS OUT.
I WILL POST THE FINDING AND THE OUT COME, ALSO MY FRINDS 02 IS IN FOR THE SAME REASON. STARTS FINE RIDE IT FOR ABOUT TEN MINUTES OR A COUPLE MILES AND IT TURNS INTO THE(BEAST)AND HAS A MIND OF IT OWN.POPING, BACK FIREING ACTS LIKE ITS RUNING OUT OF GAS, THEN IT WILL RUN FINE AND START THE ROUTINE ALL OVER AND THEN DROP DEAD. THAT IS WHEN YOUR ABOUT TEN MILES A WAY, YOU ASK WHY WOULD ANY ONE GET THAT FAR AWAY, I REALY LIKE TO RIDE IT WHEN IT RUNS. :) :D

OZZY, What info did you find on vent tubes? I was just wondering. I ran a search for vent tube but I didn't find anything that was interesting on that topic. :)

Kc husky. The post on the vent tube, was that it will not let gas vapors exit the tank and push gas into the garb and into the cylinder and foul the plug, sounds like it could happen. I just got my bike back from the dealer and they said it was runing rich (like i didnt know that )they droped it all the way down to 155 on the main. Runs real good time will tell. :)

Ozzy,

That may sound like a small main, but I run a 162 at 500 feet. Sounds about like a suggestion from Taffy.

The popping, backfiring, and bucking is the plug fouling. I went through that last year on mine.

Good luck,
mwc
