    Sounds like you need to adjust the point where the low speed jet drops off and the hi speed jet takes over.:oldconfused: OR I could be all wrong!:oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh:

    Depends on if it just started happening or not. I would def try checking the gas, cleaning the carb out real good.

    Duh! If I had any common sense, that would have been my first thought too! But,:cheers: then again, I aint the shiniest spoke in the wheel! :nonod: Once again I overlook the simple fix and go straight to the "screwing things up" stage :oldnono:

    Its the 2006 special edition K9 Electronic Fuel Injection Carbureted model, 1 of 1....:oldsmile:

    Sounds like it (CARB) needs to be cleaned or you have bad gasoline.....I'd start there.....UNLESS it is fuel injected....bad gasoline.....or do what @chubs and I always do, break it twice before fixing it, if you want that approach, replace the fuel pump FIRST, then try the simple solutions......:oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh::oldlaugh::oldlaugh:

    Is it just me, thinking that people should come on here and introduce themselves and tell us about themselves and their bike in a respectful manner, or is the new way of doing things is just to come on and say, hey....my shit won't run....

    I have, on occasion, substituted baffle fluid in the blinkers. They blink, but not as bright.
