Re: Bike keeps dying
Well, thanks for the advice. I've been an auto mechanic for a long time and I've worked on bikes but nothing major. So, I know the basics to look for, but this just seems baffling. Anyway, I have have seen trouble similar to this before and it was due to using too high octane gasoline. So, I dropped from 93 to 89 octane and put a whole bottle of Fuel System Cleaner (Techron) and it got worse, a lot worse. But then today after running it some more it cleared up and began running just fine. So, the question now is, what octane do you guys run?
1977 Honda XL75S, 1979 Honda XL185S, 1982 Honda FT500 Ascot, 1975 Honda CB750, 1977 Husqvarna CR430, 1979 BMW R100RS, 1986 BMW K100RS, 1996 BMW K1100RS, 2006 BMW K1200S, 2007 Suzuki M50 Boulevard, 1984 Honda V65 Sabre, 1999 BMW K1200LT.
