Bike dies on the highway multiple times
Need a little help. I have a 2018 with 900 miles on it. It has been running flawless until I installed crash bars, as I had to take off the tank. Probabbly my fault. I didn't like the short hose going to the T, off the petcock. So I put in a longer one that isn't the tightest fit and used zip ties to tighten it. I went for a 40 mile ride in 60-65 degree weather, no problems at all. On the way back it was 70-75 degree weather and about 5 miles down the highway the bike died. ( full tank of fuel) After sitting a minute it started right up and idled perfect. again it died about 5 miles, and after sitting it seemed to start and run perfect again. It died 2 more times then I started to use the choke on full when loosing power and was able to get it home. ( what does that second hose do) I did get the right hose but haven't installed it yet. Or could I have water in the fuel, as I did get some dry gas also. could I have something blocking the float bowl or a sticky float bowl. It seems fuel related.
850ish flawless miles till I put the crash bars on
Thanks for any help or sugestions
