Engine Stalls on stopping


Recommended Posts

And no, i'm not stalling it.

Evertime i stop the bike stalls. When I change gear it feels like it's going to stop, and the revs in general feel less.....powerful than they should be.

I know the bike's been running rich for a while, and also the other night it dropped from standing on the right hand side (ie. throttle grip) but it just dug in to the mud of my garden about half an inch?

Any ideas anyone?

I think i might overhaul the whole carb/throttle cable / throttle grip system this winter.......atleast.......try :)

I have to agree with the Idle needing adjusting. I thought you only got carb icing while the bike was moving and you have come off the throttle. Well my Ninja is like that.


That's exactly what it was doing, it didn't do it in my garden standing still.

I tended to find that when the carbs iced I couldn't accelerate at worst I wold just pull over and let the bike run or a bit. I haven't heard of any other bikes having the same problem....

You could try a bit of redex or something similar to see what happens, some people have said that soem high octane stuff will help. I think theres a thread about carb icing somewhere on here, if not pm me and I can send you all the info I have on carb icing...
