my '02 426 stalls occasionally right off idle when i crack the throttle, im assuming there is a problem witht he AC pump either too much fuel, or not enough. doesnt matter if its hot or cold.

When is the last time you cleaned the Carb and air filter?

Is the stalling when the bike is just idling not in gear on the stand in neutral? If yes Totally normal

Did the problem just start, or has it been doing this for some time? If it just started, start by cleaning the carb. What year bike?

Clean the carb out well and if it still does it do the BK mod.
