Yz426

I just bought a 01 yz 426 from a guy and I took it out for the first time it rose great for about 20 min then just died on me then it would start but only for a couple seconds and if I tried to Rev it it just bogged down anyone have any ideas what it could be possibly bad gas I'm not sure

Will it idle?

At first it would idle for about 15 seconds then die and it would bog when I tried to give it gas so I tried to start it for about a half hr then turned the gas off and turned it back on then it started and ran good and I haven't had a chance to ride it since I drained all the fuel out of it

Hmm... Fuel line may just have had a blockage but you should probably give it a good carb clean anyway since its a used bike.

Ya that's kinda what I was thinking it was really weird is there any additive I can run in my fuel to help clean it out

You could try the Gumout cleaner but I would just clean the carb and hit those jets with some compressed air or some solder wire.

Alright il try it

Additives will help, but it's very unlikely that they'll clean it out enough to stop it from stalling if it already does. They take time. 

 

And I agree, check your fuel line too.

Thanks guys il check it out this weekend

My bike will sit and idle for as long as it wants but when I go to ride it I get about a mile and it wants to bog down feels like it's getting to much fuel any ideas why that would be
