My bike has never done this in the past, but the past couple days has been hell. When I'm pulling up to or stopped at a light or sign my bike has been dying. Normally it's right when I pull the clutch in or while it's sitting in neutral. This last time my oil light came on when it died.
Anyone else have this problem?
Should I be paranoid?
Should I stop riding it and take it to the shop?
I have cored pipes disabled flapper and map 2. could any of these be the problem?
Some times the is a lack of power for u bike you need a good amount of fuel and air to keep it runnnig at a set of light i had the same problmes on my nsr 125cc all u need to do is change the amount of fuel and air going in the engine

Re: Killing Problem
Unfortunatly the 04 and up use electronic idle controll.
Does your bike have the latest map? Mine is an earlyer modle of 04 which was bad for stalling at a light untill the right map for the ecu came out to cure that problem/.

there will be a relay for indicators on your bike usually under seat compartments , and also water may have got into the switch for your indicators . check also that the globes aren't blown . these things happen .
when i shut off my 2002 suzuki motorcyle it run perfect then went to start i and have no power battery good have no light on dash no head light brrake light everything is dead what could be wrong can you help with a idea thank you dave
If the bike is losing ALL power, I'm talking about dash lights, headlight, tail light, ALL lights, it's probably something tripping the main breaker. The breaker should be located either under the seat or behind the trianglular panel on the right side of the bike. I'd look for a frayed wire near the starter or around the rear cylinder due to the head in that area.
Know that most shops will probably refuse to do repairs on your bike if it is more than 10 years old. Most all shops use this same standard. Parts availability is the main problem. In any event, below are things to look for if getting a used bike. Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation? Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? (Bad valve guides). Any smoke when riding at 30mph? (Piston rings worn or possible previous seize up). Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull? Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride? Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers? Any red lights on the gages lit up? Any computer codes flashing? Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly? Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? (Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike). Is the oil "white-ish"? (water in the oil. If motor is water cooled it's usually bad water pump seals). Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else? Does it shift smoothly up and down the full gear range? Neutral light come on properly? Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain? Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly? Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken? Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave? Do the forks look bent from a side view or front view? Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners? Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past? With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction? Do all accessories work properly? Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist? . These are things to look for. I hope this helps. A “very helpful” rating for this answer?Thanks!
hmmm, a few posibilities, might well be split cab diaphragms but overhaul should have spotted that. sounds like either too much gas or not enough, either flooding/gassing up or fuel starvation. could try running it without the aire filter too see what happens. it should run weak so if bike is better then you have too much gas, if bike worse then runnig weak to start with. I have seen this before with one particular cause.... petrol tap was leaking, gas runs past pistons when bike not running, soaks past and into crankcases. as breather recycles vapour back in to air box, when bike warm it's as rich sas hell. take of oil filler cap on engine and have a good sniff. you should smell only oil, if it's a strong smell of petrol, change oil and filter, dump petrol tap or see if new seals available.
Try raising the front of the shift pedal one or two notches on the shift shaft. Chances are because of the current height of the shift lever your shoe lifts the lever too far thus going right past neutral.
Have you tried adjusting your clutch cable? If the clutch was bad you would rev the engine in gear but the bike would not speed up as it should because the clutch was slipping. But if your cable is out of adjustment pulling the lever may not be disengaging the clutch. You should find the adjustment at the clutch lever, should be a larger locknut and a smaller adjusting screw. You want about 1/2" of freeplay in the lever before it starts disengaging the clutch.
Did it stall with a big **** like you didn't pull in the lever or did it just die? If it died, maybe the sidestand switch is faulting, killing the engine because it thinks your kickstand is still down.
