Any of you techies out there would know why my 2000 VTR would suddenly after about 40km of (same day) riding begin to run reallllllly rich?
I mean like soot in the pipe rich.
I bought it today and it had been in storage for a while.
Not sure if fuel stabilizer was used, it ran perfectly for the first 40km.
I was idling downtown in traffic, went to accelerate and it just died on me. Took me a while to get it re started.
It totally lacks any power now and it idles at around 500 rpm.
It has yoshi RS3's installed.
I've heard fuel contamination as a possible cause but that should make it run leaner shouldnt it?
Also, I let it cool off for a few minutes and it ran ok for a while but then the problem re-surfaced again.
I dont think that the carbs were played with.
