OK so I was frieghten' home from San Diego Saturday and my bike started to act like it was running out of gas. No biggie i reached down flipped it to reserve...Nothing. Its still sputtering and wanting to die. I get to the the side of the freeway and check a few things. It all looks good. So I kick it over and it lights up! Well it will idle but the minute i give it gas it sputters and dies again. after 2.5 hours on the side of the road I get a tow (thanks =mike=! you saved my ass again)
So I get it home and pull out the petcock its fine, i clean out the already clean fuel filter and take apart the carb. Nothing is wrong. Even put in new plugs. Its still doing the same thing but now its even harder to start up and get to idle. I peeked at the ignition module and its in there tight. Any one have ideas? HELP!
P.S for the whole time i was on the side of the road not one of the 100's of bikes that drove by stopped. Its good to know there is still a brotherhood....NOT !

Off topic of this post but I just thought of something

Rumor has it that local phoenix police will be getting new Harely for their bikes(highway has aready started getting BMWs)

So if you get a membership to H.O.G once you get a Harely, and the cops are getting Harelys.....good times

Pigs riding hogs seems unnatural

It's better than those Jetson mobiles they ride around on now. Last bike cop that pulled me over swore that he had a 1200cc Fat Boy. I called bullshit and then he proceded to write me a multitude of tickets.
