CIAO specs:aftermarket sito exhaust, a 12/10 carb upjetted to 49.
Initially the battery was attached but not charged. The bike would start on the stand but when you would pull in the rear brake it would kill the engine. If you let the bike rev down after starting you could ride it. We eventually fixed this by disconnecting the brake light switch deducing it was an electrical issue (by applying the brake it would draw power away from the engine causing it to stop). The bike ran fine for a little while on short trips. Lengthy trips would result in the bike dying at a stop and being very difficult to start up again. To try and diagnose the problem we've cleaned the carb multiple times, traded out exhausts, traded out carbs to where it is stock now.
I ran the bike for a little without the battery and it finally gave up on me. I believe i probably blew a diode or something. Now i have little or no power, it backfires, and once i get it running when it wants to die if i flicker the on/off switch it will kick back on but not enough to really run.
Currently. The bike has a charged battery in it so when i turn the key the rear light comes on.
