I ride a 99' yz 400f, last time I took it out on an all day ride I noticed that when it was idleing if the bike tipped to the right the motor would cut out and stall. Just wondering if anyone knows what that might be or what would cause the bike to cut out idleing tipped to the right but no other time.

id pull the carb, and make sure the float isn't set too low.
that would cause the fuel level to be too low, and therefore randomly cut out when it tips to the side. (have any trouble going up steep hills?)

and make sure there isn't any drit or grime stuck in any of the jets. :thumbsup:
