Da Ja Vu?? Was I Dreaming? WTH?

I could have sworn I just read a post about someone turning their handel bars hard to the left and the engine stallsÖ.


Ths happened to me yesterday. It seem it cuts the engine when I turn hard left but not hard right. It does not happen all the time thoughtÖ.

Anyone?

Check the routing and adjustment of the choke cable. It's getting hung up when you turn left.

Clutch switch interlock? Just thinking out loud. Ignition switch wiring? Kill switch wiring?

Damnit Flash. You beat me to the punch. I guess that's why they call you flash?

No trust me it is the clutch cable. I've experienced it personally and helped several others with the same problem.

Yep that is what it was. I am guessing that we all have one thing in common....

We all adjusted the handle bars from something other then factory...

Makes me think of Bill & Ted's excellent adventure:
