Riding tonight at a cool -1* C. Bike is running great then suddenly stalls out at a dark location on the road. I kick it twice but I know something's up if it doesn't start right up. Fuse is okay. I've got gas. I check some of the wiring for looseness. Everything seems fine.
I'm thinking maybe a coil or my black box gave out. I wait about 3 or 4 minutes and kick it over and it starts but it's faltering so I high tail it to the closest place with lights which is a gas station about a 1/4 mile away. I make it to the station but it stalls as I coast in. Now that I have light I give the bike a closer look. Ha! One end of the carb balance tube has come off. That's a first. Pop it back on and I'm on my way. When I get home I throw a pair of s/s worm clamps on the tube. Just thought I would share.
