I let a guy ride my bike and when he got back he let off the throttle and the bike died, he said he recked, but the only damage i found was a busted bark buster, Now it is hard to get the bike started and once it is started i have to keep giving it gas to keep it running.

I can't find any kinked hoses and the fuel is on

the only time i got it to stay running and did not have to give it gas i turned off the fuel because i thought it might be flooded

to start it i have to use the hot start control

The bike is only a week old

Any help would be appreciated

Be sure the hot start is closing, and try turning the idle speed up.

My dads buddy told me to check the wires and the idle speed
so i traced all of the wires and found I had a loose wire, i tightened it back up and it stopped back firing, then I adjusted the idle speed, and now it is working again
thank you for your help

i don't have a clue what the wire was
