Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Any water in the gas? Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Engine acts like it is out of gas keeps stalling i can turn it off for a few minutes will run for a mile or two then does it again


Vent valve has failed closed or cannister is clogged up. Have the evap system checked from the tank to the charcoal canister. If you need to drive to a mechanic, try driving with the gas cap loose.

1200 custom sportster stops running when it get warm


Sounds like it is possibly the cam sensor. It is located under the round cover on the lower right side of the engine. The cover is held on by 2 rivets. If this is indeed the problem, you will have to re-time the bike after replacing the sensor.

DAFIER RIDER 50QT-6 OR YLYING YY50QT-6 Been in the garage numerous times. New parts fitted but same problem. Rides well for a few miles than stops. Will run again after cooled down, but stopped 9 times in...


What new parts were fitted? Were there the same issues before the parts were fitted? There may be a compression isssue due to a poorly fitted part. This will become evident as the bike becomes warm and parts start to expand with heat.

1993 xlh very cold blooded, even after riding.


hi its me again your problem sounds like you could have a slight air leak from your carb to manifold seal,this would make your motor run lean ,thereby requiring more fuel to richen the mixture to help on start up,the seal at fault is easy to replace with the min of tools and is sited on the rear of the carb where it is just pushed over the manifold and the carb is pushed into it,being made of rubber it is prone to cracking hope this cures your problem regards ian
