Could be water in fuel,drain tank and refill with fresh fuel.
check spark plug for proper gap, or gap fouling.
if none of above, look for cracks/splits in spark plug wire.
if engine runs rough when cranked, it could be incorrect air/fuel ratio.

2005 roadstar silverado starting riding bike cut out, now it wont start, turns over perfect, any ideas?


Hi, you need to first determine if the problem is ignition or fuel related. Spray some starting fluid into the air filter inlet then try to start it. You need to open the throttle 1/4 to 1/2 open. If the engine fires for a few seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem. If the engine does not fire at all, you'll need to verify you have no spark. Then you'll know it's an electrical/ignition problem.

Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

Engine will not start


Spray some either into the air filter. If it starts and runs for a few seconds then it is not getting fuel. If it won't start it may be getting too much fuel. Verify that there are no vacuum leaks and that the bowl of the carb has gas in it.

this might well be the air flow valve it is located in the intake duct work. this works to control the air flow to your motor to optimize volumetric efficiency. when these stick its chiking out the motor this is a good place to start

Engine stalls. Will start but engine runs for only a few minutes then stalls. Could it be a clogged fuel filter? Assuming it is the fuel system.


If it's running for a few minutes, it is likely the filter. If it's a few seconds, it will be the MAF. Mass air flow sensor.

Intermitantly stalls


Check fuel filter, blow back through fuel lines to tank, check lines for blockage, leaks or cracks, drain and flush fuel tank.
Make sure air intake is free from leaks or blockage, filter is clean and correctly fitted
Check fuel pump connections, try to hear if pump operates by turning on ignition (without starting engine), pump should operate for a few seconds until pressurised then cut out, any longer indicates worn or leaking pump, lines or connectors, especially if done over 300000km.
Otherwise check earths from engine to chassis, also EMS fittings for corosion, or have unit tested.
