Twice yesterday, I was on a six mile trek and the bike lost all power after about 4 miles/15 minutes. And it wouldn’t immediately restart.
I try and try again to start, it sounds like it’s going to, but it won’t catch. I check the gas flow and the tickler floods the carb, as it should. Fuel drips from the petcock when I pull the line off. The tail light is still working when I crank it.
I didn’t have tools to check the spark at the time, but after a few hours, I decide to crank it and it starts up just fine. I turn it off (cuz I’m at work and not yet ready to ride it home... I even start it up a few more times throughout my shift and all seems A-okay). After my shift, I try to drive it home and it dies again after about 15 minutes/4 miles of riding.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
