Low Fuel Cutting

I was riding home from work yesterday and the bike didn't pull right for a split second about 4 mins into the ride. It was making a left hand turn. The majority of the ride home was fine. Then about 3 minutes from my house. The low fuel light flicked on for a split second whole coming down a slight hill. I thought ok...low fuel whatever

Ill fill up tomorrow morning. I slowed down to take a left hand turn. As soon as i started turning the bike started to cut out and hiccup like mad. I rode the corner out clutch in while giving it full wrist to keep it alive. As soon as the bike straightened back up it came back to life. It rained yesterday pretty hard so i drove to work but i bet $1000 dollars that if i fill it up today it will ride fine again. So the question is...clogged fuel filter, fuel pickup, fuel line? My guess is crap on the bottom of the tank and when low the fuel pickup is choking/starving on the sediment in turns. So im just throwing this out there, to see if anyone thinks this the right diagnosis. Thanks for any input.,Thats exactly what happens when you run out of fuel... so it could be a bad filter or pickup clogged.,,,

No fuel to carb, I think..


Its seems the the gas is not entering the carburator.
Sometimes if theres water in the gas (since you had filled her up ) one experiences same symptons.
Best would be to clean the carburator but first check the petc o c k if it is allowing full flow of the gas to the carb.

Coolant Leak


There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding. If I remember, only something about it's normal and goes away when the seal around the water pump expands, but since my ride has over 5,000 miles I would imagine it wouldn't be pertaining to my situation. Make sure your rad does not have a small hole that spits coolant when under preasure/high temp.

Coolant Leak


engine coolant leaked from the left side of my bike. I had to actually speed home to keep the temps below critical. When I arrived home there was no more coolant in the reservior. I removed the fairings and put coolant just above the min mark and went out for a ride to test temperatures stayed low and no leaks. I stopped and let the bike get over 200 degrees and I still could not find a leak. My engine coolant was originally on the minimum mark when I had the leak, so i feel confident it wasn't because I had too much coolant. ,There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding.

Low Fuel Cutting


ill fill up tomorrow morning. I slowed down to take a left hand turn. As soon as i started turning the bike started to cut out and hiccup like mad. I rode the corner out clutch in while giving it full wrist to keep it alive. As soon as the bike straightened back up it came back to life. It rained yesterday pretty hard so i drove to work but i bet $1000 dollars that if i fill it up today it will ride fine again. So the question is...clogged fuel filter, fuel pickup, fuel line? My guess is crap on the bottom of the tank and when low the fuel pickup is choking/starving on the sediment in turns. So im just throwing this out there, to see if anyone thinks this the right diagnosis. Thanks for any input.,Thats exactly what happens when you run out of fuel... so it could be a bad filter or pickup clogged.,,,
