Buy a Harley
Posted on Sep 06, 2008
If the bike has been sitting over the winter or a few monts , the carburator is probably varnished up. Need to take it to a shop and get it cleaned and tuned. I usually take my carb off my dirt bike after it sits all winter and clean all the needle valves and then tune it. Good luck

You should have a idle adjustment knob under the gas tank, left side.

Hmmm... this doesn't sound like a problem that belongs here... By "cuts off" do you mean stop running, or misfire? Carb. problems often are the result of the bike having set for many months or a year or two with old gas, which can result in a varnishing like of the fuel in the carburetors, which can clogg small passage ways, and subsequent no-idle, or other poor fuel delivery. Problems such as this require repair by knowledgeable mechanics. Other things which can upset correct fuel/air mixture are modifications such different exhaust system, air cleaner change, camshaft- any mod of these can require some retuning.
