Re: bike starts and shuts off if i dont give throttle
New fuel filter, and it fired right up. Idled fine, shut it off and back on a few times. Awesome....
Drove it down the road, about 5 miles, just fine, then the bike acted like it ran out of gas. Would start, but soon die out, again acting like it was out of gas.
I called my wife to bring some tools, and pulled the tank and air box off. Checked out the fuel pump and checked everything. It was good. Started with starting fluid.
Sprayed some in. Put everything together, started the bike, and rode another 2 miles home.
Bike takes a little while to start, but seems to idle fine. If I shut it off, it starts right back up. Not sure what's going on, but I still pull the same codes.
At this point ill be riding with my tools, and some starting fluid....
