Troubles

Today I rode the 'Hawk for maybe 20 mins, with three different starting instances. Didn't notice anything amiss until I was headed home, she wouldn't rev worth a crap under 4k, and it was rapidly deteriorating. I finally had to pull into the turning lane and off onto a side road, where the bike just died. I didn't notice any lighting or gauge problems, so I shut the ignition off and back on, and rode it home just fine.

I did the carb-washer mod last night, but I'm pretty sure I got all the lines hooked up right. Is my R/R going out? I did some searching but I'm still not sure what the problem is/could be.

Any help is appreciated.

Sure sounds electrical to me. I'd pull out a Mulitmeter and start diagnosing before I started the bike again. Hopefully it's just the battery making it's way to the great beyond.

Sounds more fuel related to me since it started back up fine without a jump would suggest the battery is ok. could be other electrical like the tps sensor plug loose though. check the voltage at rest and while running (do a search for the values you should see at what RPMs)

Did you just fill the tank ? i filled mine up one day and went riding and did some hard take offs and corners and flooded out my bike when i clogged the tank vent with gas ( i over filled it ) stopped the bike and waited 2 min then it was fine

Doh!

I overlooked that part.

I took a Dick Carnegie reading comprehension course years ago. I guess it's time for a refresher.

At least the Dick Carnegie Memory Course I took is still with me.

I think it's cute! I would like to introduce that image to my x. Then she couldn't acuse me of being ugly.

Did you hook up the vacuum line to the petcock correctly?

Pretty sure both lines are correct, and I had filled the tank recently, but it wasn't overfull and I'd put 10-20 miles on it previous to this sputter

Update: I'm a dumbass, and hooked the vent line to the BOTTOM of the petcock instead of the rear, where it goes....
