Possible solution: Cleaning the main jets in the carbs. They are separate from the idle jets and would explain what you are seeing. Dis-assembly of the carburetors most likely required. Although I had a bike that you could access the main jets for inspection and cleaning by removing a large threaded plug from the bottom of each carb. Second way without removing the carbs is to remove just the bowls with a short or specialized screwdriver (and a lot of patience). I'm sure no shop would recommend this however.

Good luck,

Dies on exceleration

Have you had your fuel pressure tested? Low pressure and/or volume could cause the truck to idle normally, but not be able to take any load. There is a very high failure rate on these fuel pumps.

Engine started knocking during exceleration. Sometimes at idle. Check engine is on and says misfire in cylinder 3. plugs and coil is fine. cant figure it out. Any sugestions?

Probably the Crank Position sensor. If that is sending the wrong signal then it will try and fire the cylinder at the wrong time.

When i pull up or stop the bike it just dies other

Your idle circuit in the carb can be clogged. Have you tried to set and adjust the idle? Have you tried running with the choke on a bit. This problem can be due to
  • 1) clogged idle circuit in the carb.
  • 2) ignition timing
  • 3) Vacuum leak at carb to head mount.
  • 4) restriction in tank port, or clogged screen in tank valve.
Hope this helps.

Daytona 650 Dies At Idle

First thing that came to my mind is the AIC Valve, If it's not that, you may want to check out the idle control system (I forget what it's called.... I can check if you want.) It's attached to the throttle bodies on the right hand side and it's basically a set of motors (maybe part of the choke system) My bike is throwing a code for it, and it will die every once in a while (still can't ride it, but at idle) And if I hold the throttle open at all, it'll be fine
