Engine cutting after start when at idle, and only idle.....anyone experience this?
Ok, this just started a week ago and thought maybe you all could offer some insight. My bike will cut, as if the kill switch has been toggled after start, sometimes within a second of start, sometimes after a few mins. It will do it with the engine cold and the engine warm. Its only at idle and very sporadic, with any throttle applied it wont happen and I am yet to have it happen while riding at a stop light.
My mods are a two brothers slip and the two brothers juice box. I thought it could have been fuel coking on the nozzles but it runs super smooth. I put engine fuel system cleaner in it just for safety of mind, and it didnt work. I think its the kill switch itself.
I've learned that switches if not toggled for long periods can oxidize making the electrical connection weak, and my bike is sadly an outdoor bike, making this very possible. Toggling the switch multiple times can clear the oxidization and after doing this I cant tell if it worked or not, whatever. I know the problem is fuel delivery because the bike turns just fine as if the switch were in "kill" after dying and trying to restart.
One more reason why i think its that fuckin switch is this. The sound the bike makes, that wirr of the fuel injection system when you turn the key on initially, after the bike dies, it immediately makes that noise.
Any insight? Thanks guys!
