98 SRAD 600: stalling - August 30, 2012, 09:34 PM

this is a track bike. i started it today just to let it idle for awhile to recharge the battery. however, it kept cutting off; rpm falling under 1k and shuts off. it restarts every time. with the choke pulled back, the revs go way up. then, again with the choke off, it falls below 1k and shuts off. i even kept the rev up manually by using the throttle. the temperature got up to 160. i thought the bike should be warmed up and stay idle, yet again the rev fell below 1k and shut off. i spent about 15 - 20 mins then was done.

do i have a clogged gas line? will Seafoam help?

From simple to less simple:

Idle speed adjustment.

Pilot jets.

If it revs cleanly and doesn't stumble coming off Idle when in gear I'd start by just adjusting the idle screw. If not fixed then maybe check for vacuum leaks.

lastly go into the carbs if needed.

Seafoam is great stuff but I usually don't bother with it unless I personally know the history on the carbs.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Carbed bike, right? If, a couple pilot jets may be clogged. They control from idle-1/8 or so throttle. They have the smallest holes of all the jets so they clog pretty easy. Also, idling isn't gonna charge your battery, you're gonna have to keep the RPMs above 4k or so to charge. Last thing, check your idle screw to make sure it's set properly.

Its the jets... Shamu is temperamental when it comes to her jets.. I had to pull the carbs and clean them every spring. You might be able to get by with seafoam though.. hold the throttle open a little and it may break it up.. the old "Throttle Tuning" method.. LOL

BTW, there is a tender lead hanging under the tail if you want to plug her in...

Yep. It will also cure any mosquito issues you're having once it burns through.
