Nah she's been nice and dry. It's gotta be carb related, surely. If it was electrics, like something shorting out it would die at any revs, right?

Not if tipping it over is causing something to touch somethign it shouldnt be....does it splutter or just cut out and die? If it was carb related I would think it would be more of a splutter and die a slow death.

 

/I no nothing about bikes.

Yeah just gradual drop in engine speed until stalled as per video. I have this problem while riding too, quite often once I come to a stop I have to give it a little throttle to keep it running. have rocked the bike side to side while running and that doesn't seem to affect it.

If you ever sell it. I want to be first in line even though I probably can't afford it.

Check regulator wiring. Sounds like its running off the charging circuit, not the battery. I know earlier GS/gsx used a weird switch for the lights that altered the charge rate depending if the lights were on or not. Blowing any bulbs at all? Only thing that changes with revs electrically is the charge rate. Put a light bulb on the power feed to the coil, see what it dose then. Still running a vaccume fuel tap? The diaphragm in those is prone for leaking

Used to work at all parts motorcycles back in the day, remember when we used to import these bikes...

I think its safe to assume Yak that if a random, non-descript car starts flashing its lights at you its an oldschooler....unless the lights are coloured and roof mounted...or behind the grille on a late model Holden Commodore.

Nope, I'm in newlands. Blasted through happy valley today though, while on the distinguished gentlemans ride. Was a good day out! Approx 200 bikes riding together is quite the experience!
