Know what you are saying but a high capacity filter should be ok?

Steering head bearings o.k.; adjusted properly?
Front fork oil serviceable and set at proper levels?
Would an Eagle Mike fork brace help?

Glad to report that bike finally runs good again. Eagle Mike said it's one of the trickiest issues he had to fix. Even after replacing petcock, float needle, adjusting valves, putting back stock jet - it still kept dying. We finally replaced the whole carb, and it's been running fine ever since. Looks like it was some sort of internal blockage.
Very grateful for Mike's help, one of the nicest guys I ever met.
Unrelated to original post; I crossed Mexican border today and started experiencing bad front end wobble again. This has been an issue few weeks ago, but it seemed like it went away after replacing front tire, and truing front wheel. However, I haven't had all my gear (about 110lbs) on me since that was done until today. I have progressive rap rear shock and it seems like it's appropriately adjusted. I've set rear to 38psi and front to 35psi. Any suggestions?

|Scrapper||sorry we couldn't get it done for ya. i'm sure with a little more persistance we could have gotten it noodled out. i'm sure mike will get it figured out and fixed.|

I believe the petcock EM is selling IS the Raptor one. Works great on both my bikes. I have a gen 1 with a IMS tank and a gen2 with a stock tank.
Running issues like yours can be hard to diagnose over the internet. Almost sounds like some debris in the carb. Hope EM gets it fixed for you.

Before you replace petcocks, you might check to see if yours is working.
Disconnect fuel line at carb, stick hose end in glass jar. Crank engine, observe whether fuel flows. If so, chances are you've no vacuum petcock problem; functioning petcock is either in OPEN or CLOSED position, depending upon carb vacuum.

When it dies open up the float bowel and see if there's gas in there.

like I said on the other site; the Yamaha petcock works great.
