I still have a problem, I just barley made it home, just now.
First thing was bike died for no reason on highway. Next day I did something (I don't know what), and found bad neutral switch, and kickstand safety went, jumped that stuff out and fine, except no neutral light on the dash. (SO) went for 60 mile ride yesterday, no problems, today it wouldn't start, found my jumper I did,, pulled out, on clutch jumper, made new one, bike started and ran great.
When I put the crash bars on I created a vacume leak for the petcock thing that needs vacume to let fuel flow. that still may be a problem. But wouldn't cause total electrical to shut down, and not have a burnt fuse.
(NOW IM REALLY AT A LOSS) Went for ride, fine for 50 miles, then bike for no reason started cutting out on highway. It seemed to fix itself for a bit when I hit the starter wile rolling in gear. I tried reserve and every thing I could think of. It seemed to run good for 20 miles keeping speed and rpms down, then acted up again. ( I am no mechanic and cant figure out why hitting the starter made it come to life wile in gear coasting with key on )
It is under warranty, but it is probably something I did putting the crash bars on and or the rear bags. I probably pinched a wire or something. bike ran perfect before I touched it, but It only had 600 miles on it till I added stuff. Now has 4,400 ish.
When I relax, ill take seat and gas tank off to see if I pinched wire/s, and pull the petcock out to check the screen, and get rid of the vacume type petcock thingy. ( then ill bring it to the dealer)
Any good klr mechanics near the top west part of MN???
Im at a total loss, and any help would be great.
