What's your question? Stalls at idle when warm. Vaccum leak?
Details: Accelerates fine. When the bike is moving it runs fine but when it is warm it will not idle it stalls.

  1. yeah, sounds like an intake seal leak. could be a clogged intermediate jet, but more than likely an intake leak. change the intakes seals, they only cost about $5. By: Guest on: 11-1-2012

  2. Just trying to help here, Was idle mixture set while cold or hot? A rich condition could be fine while cold, but when hot, idle could stumble. Lean condition is usually the opposite, shitty cold and better while hot. I am not there so like I said, just trying to offer advice. By: WINK on: 11-1-2012

  3. 12 year old intake seals. I would change them first. By: Guest on: 11-1-2012

  4. Actually I have changed the intake seals but the screws are such a bitch to get to even with the tank and carb off that I'm wondering if I didn't get then tight enough. Thanx for the responses people. By: HD3006 on: 11-1-2012
