There are so many different things that can make the bike do that. The fuel pump could be going out(VERY COMMON) or you could have a dirty AIR FILTER causing the restriction. if the fuel filter was the problem you would more than likely have some backfiring or popping coming from the engine. Need more info to diagnose it. However if you want any parts - Harley Davidson and American sportbikes are a few of the only places to get em.

Try spraying carb cleaner on throttle body then check.If its running smooth then its fuel pump related issue.The fuel filter is either clogged or fuel pump is the cause of problem.Running rough actually indicates towards fuel pump issue.But still get it checked by spraying carb cleaner on throttle body.------ also recheck the heat sensor connections are they getting burnt or loose.If all getting checked ok, then it can be ECU related issue.But first check the fuel pump, filter, heat sensor connections.Also re check if the error code is changed.As you mentioned the buell runs fine with throttle open, it can be tps related error.Tps means throttle position sensor. ----------- If all checked ok, then yes it can be ECU.---------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

2000 Buell Blast runs great around town. Freeway speeds runs for 3 to 5 miles then out of nowhere dies. Acts like it's running out of fuel then dies. I have pulled the carb and cleaned the jets. C


If it starts up after sitting for a few minutes, (like 2 or 3) it could have a plugged fuel filter or the gas tank strainer built into the fuel valve could be plugged too. Drain the gastank anyway and change the gas with fresh. can't hurt. If it takes 15-30 minutes or after the bike cools some I would look at an ignition coil. Check to see if it has spark next time it quits.

I have a yamaha tdm 850 1992 model, it runs and startds fine and does not miss a beat. over the last day it has started to cut out completely at freeway speeds. it will do approximately 10 minutes fine...


Because of the higher voltages run in bikes nowdays to meet fuel regulations,spark plugs are often a big problem.Drop a new set of plugs in .It's the easiest and cheapest place to start.No dealers to rip you off.If this is not the problem,it would suprise me.Hope this helps

My 04 Kia Optima will start but then it runs rough. It acts like I might have trash or water in my fuel line. Does anyone know where the fuel line filter is located, also could this be a problem with fuel...


Put a can of a product called "Seafoam" in the gas tank. Also do the following procedure.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Riding to work bike with no problems acts like


fuel system may need to have solids (trash or water) removed.Clean tank, hoses and filter. If you find trash in any of these, the carbs are next to be cleaned out.

When ridden hard bike will splutter or miss but runs fine on low revs


Fuel supply running out. Usually clogged filter. that allows enough gas through to run at lower rpms but not at high demand. Could be filter in tank, there is a mesh screen on the inlet to the fuel petcock. You would have to have some serious issues with rust in the tank or a batch of extremely bad gas for this to happen. I would look to see if you have an inline filter, I have no knowledge of that particular bike.

2000 chevy blazer 4X4. After driving twenty to thirty miles on freeway when I pull off to the off ramp and come to a stop my battery gauge will start to flicker as well as my fuel gauge, will do that...


Are there any codes in the pcm?
There are quite a few things that could cause this;
Make sure the battery cables are tight and clean.
If you have a way to do it, need to find out what the fuel pressure is at when it is acting up.
Dose it miss at all or just loose rpm's and die, no matter what you do? (meaning can you keep it alive by pressing the gas peddle)

To me it sounds like your new fuel pump is loosing pressure while running for a while. But try and get a pressure reading and post back, that will give us something to rule out, or to address.
I think the light flicker you are talking about is just low engine rpm's?

Will not idle


blocked carbs, get a good fuel system cleaner, if you in USA get Berrymans B12, double the dose and mix in tank. run til hot then leave to stand overnight. also if you can remove the air cleaner to get to carb intake, get spray carb cleaner an chuck a load in there. also check to see if you have a fuel filter inline
