I hope you confirmed that you have enough gas in the tank. The next possibility for such a situation is either your fuel filter is clogged. And also check if your spark plug wire is firmly attached to the plug. Knowing the model of the bike helps a lot, so if you are not able to fix the issue with these, please let me know the make and model.

Bike runs good but when I give it full throttle, especially in 2nd gear, it cuts out and almost stalls. Do you have any suggestions?

Could be starving for fuel or could be the coil. Is it fuel injected or carburetor ? Now when it cuts out this is the important part. When it cuts out is it a jerky quick cut out or a much smoother and longer cut out. The quicker one represents the coil and the longer one would be fuel. If it has a carburetor then check the fuel line. Is it old and stiff or shows crack lines? Check the fuel filter. if it is fuel injected then the fuel pump could be at fault. You know there are also other things to check. The spark plugs can cause it to cut out under a load. The spark plugs should be the proper ones for this bike. Each plug has a rating and you have heard of being a hotter plug? This just means more or less spark power at the gap. Too much is not as good as too little. But it should be enough to ignite the gas. You can remove the plug and inspect for cleanliness and color. a brownish color is best. White is not good and means it is too lean. Black and it means it is not burning correctly and oily. When you have the plug out ground the threads to the engine and turn your bike over. What does the spark look like? Dark blue is good. Red is ok, light red with a yellowish tint is getting weak and will not be enough to fire the gas at a higher speed. what happens is the faster the speed of the bike the quicker the spark has to develop. If it is a lighter color and it has to fire quickly, the spark would have almost diminished to nothing, but on the other hand if it is dark blue if it has to fire quickly there is still enough uumph to do the job. You see the amount of spark is also determined by the frequency the coil on and off. Well hope this helps you to determine if it is gas or spark problem. If spark its the spark plug,coil or spark plug cable. I have seen the cable where it contacts the spark plug be a problem.
If it is fuel , fuel filter, fuel line,fuel pump, injectors and possibly which I have overlooked, could be other electrical items such as throttle sensor, cam sensor. Not sure what bike you have but this should cover most all of it.

Bike wont start

Check the fuel tap is turned on and that the fuel filter is clean. If this is all good, you should check that fuel is getting into the fuel reservoir on the carb. If no fuel is getting through, your fuel pump may have failed. But, as you don't say the make and model of your bike, I can't be sure.

1300 A5, 2005, new battery fitted. engine turns over but will not start plenty of fuel in tank fuses seem ok bike did run ok, according to last owner, apart from having flat battery, would not hold...

Double check that the battery is connected right including the smaller positive wire( can be burned off and the bike won't charge. With the battery fully charged and the chaging system unplugged ( plug has a battery wire ( red ) a black wire ( ground) and three either yellow wires either that or white all the same color and size. UNplug this plug. Remove a spark plug and put thew wire back on it and lay it on the head or other ground and see if it sparks as the bike is charked ( be careful as it might start on the other cyclinder) If it sparks add a small amount of fuel to the air inlet to see if it'll start with a little extra fuel if it starts and dies then your looking for a fuel problem. This bike has a fuel pump and in nuetral with the kickstand up you shoud hear it come on as the keys turned on. If not your back to checking fuses and even the kickstand sawitch. kill switch ON? Fuel in tank new enough.?

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

Get some engine starting fluid and spray a small amount in the air intake. If that doesn't work take out the spark plug and see if it sparks when you pull the cord and make sure it is not fouled. If it is wet with fuel dry out the plug and pull the cord a few times to clear the cylinder. Fresh premium fuel always works best on temperamental engines.

Wont start

This bike is probably equipped with immobilizer system and you should have a red key along with two black ones.
That means that if the ECU does not detect the correct key code from the IC inside the key, it will neither give power to the fuel pump nor to the spark plugs.
The main key switch has a lot of wire in 2 groups.One big and one small (thin).Which wires did you jumped?

Bike shut off on the freeway and wont start again.

Got gas? Got water in the gas? Drain the carbs and fuel line.

Check for spark. If no spark then check again with a new plug.
Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.
Are all wires clean and with a solid connections? Check the loom. Any abraded wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. With a little luck this will get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
