hi man,
I had a similar problem, so maybe I can help you. it can be connected with air filter. under your seat there should be some kind of cover on the air filter. just remove it. I've noticed this problem when I unrestricted my KMX 125. the hole on the cover on the air filter is too small.

The fuel tanks are common to rust through, maybe that is where the dirt is from.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of initial checks (after battery has been fully charged):

  • presence or absence of spark when starting - unplug 1 of the sparkplug wires. Attach a spare known good sparkplug and lay it against any metal part. Crank/start the engine. Chaeck for sparks;
  • try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up;
  • exercise the 'Kill Switch' and the ignition switch;
  • loosen the drain screws of the carbs.  Note the quality and quantity of fuel that would flow out from the drain hose. Compare between all carbs.
Please postback results of above initial tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Your bike has a computerized ignition module or AC-CDI. I suspect the storage of you bike may have allowed the battery to discharge below the minimum voltage required for the ignition module to function. Charge the battery and also drain a small amount of gas from the bottom of the carb(s). Note whether there is free flow of gas from the tank to refill the carb bowl(s).

When im in 5th gear and the powerband kicks in the bike shifts back in 4th

keep your foot clear of the shift lever. It cannot shifton its own because the gear train is under a load and more so when the power band kicks in.

Auto will not kick or drop down to 1st during city traffic

It seems to me by the way you describe it to me that your modulator valve is faulty or needs adjustment. If you have a manual for this transmission I ques it is a little ZF,
Look up and try and find the modulator valve and try to adjust it if you want to do it your self and see adjustment in your manual.

It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.
