Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
14. 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.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

Too lean!

Carburation is more than likely set too lean, or like one of my buys, had a cracked inlet manifold..letting in air.

The site below shows the carby in all it's glory with every part and name. The list of jets size# are for the range of riding conditions for that bike. Get jets at least one increment UP in size. They're available from all bike make dealers.

Exhaust, cam or valve timing/modifications will efect jetting to some degree, as will the need of a top end service.

Cheers.

SOURCE: 1987 XR600 stops when hot

Take your carburetor apart , clean it, and inspect the insides. My similar experience found the slow jet in the bottom of the bowl and a previous cleaner having installed the piston spring in the car top incorrectly. Put everything back to the stock settings (air screw). Double check the intake boot for cracks or separation. The problem is probably very simple , but disassembly will be required.

My 1989 XR600 stops after about 5 min of riding. It reaches runing temperature then shuts itself down.


I have come across this problem with an 94 model xr 600. you would start it easily than after a whilst of either idiling or riding would die, and take quiet a bit of starting. This turned out to be a burnt valve in the cylinder head. However all cases would be different, i suggest replacing the plug, cleaning the air filter and going from their. Also some models had a problem with the choke butterfly breaking and being sucked into the inlet, another good thing to quickly check!

1987 XR600 stops when hot then won't start. Bike starts ok, with air screw all the way out will idle for about 3-5 minutes then stops - also stops if I rev the engine. Once it's warm won't start again...


Take your carburetor apart , clean it, and inspect the insides. My similar experience found the slow jet in the bottom of the bowl and a previous cleaner having installed the piston spring in the car top incorrectly. Put everything back to the stock settings (air screw). Double check the intake boot for cracks or separation. The problem is probably very simple , but disassembly will be required.
