Hi, Robert_dwigh and the usual suspects are:

3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.

8. Intake air leak.
9. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, fuel pump and/or filter.

SOURCE: Electrical Issue
Had the same problem. I had to remove battery, take apart the battery terminals, sand them a little, then put it all back together. Make sure the screw on the front of the terminal holding the inner bar in place if very tight. Have had no problem ever sense. Good luck.

u have the mixture screw wound in to far. its normally located on the bottom of the carb. try winding it out half a turn at a time once the bike has warmed up. also turn the idle screw out a quarter of a turn at the time its in to far thats why it idles at low revs. the choke is needed to keep the air fuel mixture right thats why u are having to leave it on for so long. hope this helps.

You need to fix the fueling first - without fuel it won't run!
Your other problem sounds like an air leak - either the manifold or the carb. Check by spraying WD-40 or CRC at the manifold and carb join while the bike is running - if the revs change (either up or down) you have a leak.

Sounds like ignition problems; I know you've had it serviced but check condition of spark plugs. Check all electrical contacts for corrosion, more specifically the timing pickup circuit, wires to coils, CDI connector. You're CDI may be the culprit, try swapping it out for a known good one. If it's back firing then enough fuel is getting through the carbs, so would indicate to me that the problem doesn't lie there. Hope you have some luck.

I believe the clutch disc is slipping. This is not something that will get better on it's own. Clutches are wearing parts. When they are worn out or dangerously out of adjustment the clutch will slip. That is to say it will not transmit as much of the available power to ground as it should. You must get this fixed as soon as possible. If you do not know how to adjust the clutch cable find someone who does and pray that you have not already glazed the clutch. Glazed clutches have to be reworked or replaced. Either way it is a big expensive job. Get it done. Ride easy or not at all until you get it fixed. Good Luck.

Testimonial: "This solution sounds about right to me. Just had the dealer collect the bnoike 30 minutes ago. He recond it was clutch too. We'll wait and see"
