    From such a general statement I can only give a general response - it's broken. I need specific details to provide a specific answer. How long has it been acting this way? How many miles on the motorcycle? Have you done any maintenance recently? What rpm are you having the problem at? Have you checked to make sure the bike has gas and oil in it? What about spark plugs and caps? Air filter & fuel filter? Does it run well when it is not moving and only act up while driving it? What is the condition of your battery?

Buell Blasts have a known issue involving the carb boot. If the bike is a couple of years old check out the rubber spacer/conector which is betwwen the carb and the engine. Chances are that it is cracked and allowing air to enter direcly. This will cause your bike to sputter and have starting issues. Chck this out first and if it is not this then check the spark plug what color is the ceramic electrode and tip. This will tell you alot about what is going on inside the engine. The carb boot is a cheap fix less than 20 bucks. Good luck

Is it back firing, dying on you, and will it ride???

if the bike dies when you put it into gear and try to ride, you most likely have a carb/fi prob, or it could be a simple as bad gas,.

if the bike was stored with fuel in it then i bet its the latter,

drain the fuel and start fresh.
you will most likely need a carb clean.

i would also try using a VERY small amt of
BG products "44K." fuel injection cleaner.
this stuff is very strong so use with care!!!

Have a 1989 pontiac grand prix 3.1, that runs like crap when warmed up. Pops n cracks, dies. & re-starts on its own. It will die when ur sitting there in gear with foot on gas n other foot on brake....

From what you are saying this problem is when you have your foot on the brake. If that is the case remove and blank of the brake booster vacuum hose and see if the problem persists. If not then the fault will be in the brake booster allowing air into the manifold and up setting the air/fuel mixture and running too lean

1991 deville starts and dies then won't try to start again until the key is off and tried again

Hello there,. I got some dough to put down on this one.

First, I'm assuming, maybe a long stretch here -- Do you have a lot of weight (numerous keys or other) on the key chain which you use in your ignition??

If this is the case, you most likely have a worn ignition switch that crapped out.

If not, then you have a real good question where I'd like to see some more details -- how was the car running before on start up, # miles? what about the transmission shift linkage - is it worn? is it on the steering column? have you tested the shifting lever switch inside to see if it crapped out? Did you try to work the gears back and forth to test the switch?

FYI:... sorry for the slow response time, been BURIED with life in general - thought someone else would have picked up your question by now!

Best regards

2004 nissan altima running very hot 60,000 miles..suspect is thermostat, easy to change, DIY I have same issue. No coolant leak, have put car up on lift with two guys looking for leak, and nothing....

It may be temperature sensor on radiator. Dashboard gets info from it. If this sensor is not good, ac will stop and dashboard willl show some strange temperatures.

How do i reinstall all of my Vista laptop because it is going slow and i have taken up too much space on the hard drive?

hi...the problem being is that you proberly have to much on your hard drive. Firstly goto control panel then add remove programs. Remove any that you dont use. Then goto system tools and defrag drive. If that dosent work download....spybot search and destroy....adaware and ccleaner these are freeware programs and therefore cost nothing. Once downloaded run these programs and your slow computer will once more run as it should.

Asking about the slow down of the games

your RAM may be occupied by some other process.
calcel all unwanted programs in start up nad process TAB in task manager.

if this is not helping it may be some virus or some bad stuff making process slow in hidden manner.

even if this dosent help go for reformating XP freshly.

if this solution is not working dont give a rating as in-appropriate please. give the rating you feel.
