Tony31138 Posted November 20, 2007 Share Posted November 20, 2007 Maybe someone can help me figure this one out. Rode my '04 1150RT 70 miles to work yesterday, ran fine. On the way home, 5 minutes from work, the bike stalled as I was decelerating in gear (20mph?). pulled over, tried starting it, it started after turning over a few times as if it were flooded. Ran a little rough at first, then fine after that for another few minutes, then it happened again. Got it started again and was able to keep it running when the roughness would start by giving it some throttle. 15 minutes or so of nursing it along and it cleared up. Made it home with no more trouble. The only thing to add is that I gassed up while at work (5.3 gallons) and did over fill it some into the filler neck, enough that it drained some out the overflow drain line while parked using the side stand. I thought it might be bad gas, but then why did it clear up? Same for clogged filter, jet or any other fuel/air passage. Might something electrical be thinking about quitting on me? ANY thoughts would be very much appreciated. Tony S. 04' R1150RT Commuter Link to comment
