Could it be as simple as petrol switch set at "Drain" instead of off.
likely cause if not is loose or split in fuel line in between fuel tank and carb

SOURCE: new battery, tight connections, start the bike up

Hello James
Hearing your problem strikes right at me. My old Jeep Cherokee had the same problem. You have two possible problems, alternator and regulator. Luckily for you, both can be taken to any good sized auto parts store and tested for free:) The reason it dies is that the bike uses electricity to generate sparks at the spark plugs, if you don't have something to resupply the battery(ie:alternator) then it will slowly die(also causing the lights to dim more and more). The alternator could not be charging the battery, or the regulator could be not allowing the alternator to charge the battery.Taking the out could become quite difficult, my GoldWing makes it extremely hard, but the rest of the job should be easy.

Hope this helps

Its your fuel pump if you can't hear it. And its inside your tank. Not a hard fix if you have a book that tells you how to remove it. Alot of procedures to follow to get it right. And yes it does work off a relay.

SOURCE: Hi,I just bought a 84 honda goldwing interstate.

The bike may be discharging the battery. you need to test stator output,voltage regulator,and the fuses. Does the battery need to be recharged to restart?

SOURCE: Honda CG125 stalls when choke closed

Hi mate, what you want to do is take a dump in the petrol tank. This usually cleans the carb out with your **** and works surprisingly well.

You apparently have a leak in your fuel system that allows air in to the fuel system but doesn't leak fuel out enough to be that noticeable. I found this to be true on my 6.2 diesel, so I put light air pressure to the end of a tank vent line and turned on the little compressor. I found the leak spot right away, made the line repair, and have had no more problems with stalling or over-revving.

Small gas leak on 2005 Honda VTX1300R

I would suspect and look for any cracked or damaged rubber or other flexible type gas line/s from or to the tank, and where they connect to. That would be the 1st most probable location of leaks. Then the tank or carburetor/injectors.

2005 Honda CBR 125 cut out and now won't start

Hi, Sam and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

Assuming there's enough fuel in the tank - If the fuel filter is extremely clogged - try starting with the fuel cap off so it won't have work against the vacuum in the fuel tank. Fuel caps have breather holes which can be clogged also. The holes release the vacuum in the tank slowly. If it starts ok then, the problem sits in fuel supply - for example the fuel filter.

Smell the exhaust pipe - if it smells strongly like petrol, most likely it's the ignition system requiring service. (sparkplugs, distributer, sparklines)

Hi my bmw 316i 1600 with a e36 engine is only doing about 10 to the gall, any ideas, also notice a strong smell of petrol when first starting car and smells stays there for about 15 mins, and also notice...

run the fault codes
problems with running rich include:-
injectors not working properly
excessive fuel pressure
leaking injector seals
heated oxygen sensor failure ( they are located in the exhaust manifold /pipe before the cat converter and are used to read the exhaust gas composition and report to the ECM which adjusts the air/fuel mixture accordingly
ambient air /BARO sensor which report the air temp/pressure to again allow the ECM to set mixture
The strong fuel smell can be from fuel leaks , flooding --as stated with injectors or an EVAP system vent solenoid problem
The first 4 possibles would be the most obvious place to start especially with a fault code reading

Hills don't make any difference with the fuel tank setup they have now days. If this is a continuois problem I would replace the fuel filter first and check your air filter( if it is dirty replace it) also have fuel pressure checked. The filters are the cheapest first steps to take. let me know

I have a 1986 Aspencade Goldwing GL1200A, The bike got blown over do to strong winds. I can get the engine started but it will shut down a few minutes later or driving it about 2 to 3 block.

The fuel doesn't reaches the carburetors fast enough and they run dry - there's something wrong with the fuel line, it's choked somehow. Or the fuel pump was damaged by the fall. You should also check the tank and its tap.
