Re: engine won't idle unless moving forward

I'm curious..when you try and idle when not moving..are you holding down the brakes to stop the bike? My peugeot had a problem that whenever you depressed the brakes when the bike was idling it'd kill the engine..something to do with the way the bike is wired (i still cant quite figure it out completely..). With mine I had an unreliable spark to begin with because of a bad condensor. As for brakes, to get mine to work good i ended up taking off the wheel and just taking them apart (good opportunity there for chrome-polishing the wheels also). check the shoes to see that they're not too badly worn and get rid of any dirt or gunk thats built up on the shoes and the drum.
