I'm having some issues with the bike, it somehow developed this problem overnight..

well, let me try to explain the problem...bike starts, fires up no problem. Have the choke pulled and keep it warming up for about 5 mins. When I go to push the choke in all the way, it dies. I can definitely tell something is off by the way its idling, but i'm not a mechanic by far...

Is there only a problem at idle?


How does it run on the highway?


What do the plugs look like?

Run some seafoam thru it. Sounds like carb is dirty.

Common symptom of a plugged pilot jet, usually needs to be replaced. I suggest a new #45 jet.
