Near the end of a 35 mile ride last weekend and after running flat out for about 7 or 8 miles my hobbit wouldn't idle and died every time I slowed down. It had been running perfectly all day.
It didn't make much sense but I figured something was screwing up the idle circuit. When I had it out to clean it, everything was clean and clear but I found that the Welch plug was missing and there was a bare opening in its place.
So while I wait on a couple new plugs, does anyone know if that is what could be screwing up my idle circuit? Has anyone ever lost one while riding?
