KLR250 Cutting Out/Dying Issue
New to the forum and new to a KLR 250. Just picked up the bike Thursday (03/02/2017); finally got it out on the road yesterday. Did a good 20mile ride in the morning; majority on the street. Later met up with some buddies to ride some dirt; rode about another 20mi to get to the location to ride dirt and rode there for about 1.5hrs; jumps/offroad/everything, with no problems.
Heres were it went south we started to head home and a friend got a flat on his bike; so 2 of us took off to the gas station and he an another stayed behind; I knew I was getting low on fuel so I was going to fill up when I got there; about 1/4 mile from the station my bike started cutting out and then completely died. I figured I was out of gas, but could hear some sloshing around. So I tipped my bike on its left side and got all of the gas from the other side of the hump to the petcock. It kicked right over and I was able to make it the rest of the way. I filled up an we took back off to help our friend out; I made it about a mile down the road running about 55-60mph and the bike cut out and eventually died again. I kicked it a few times and it started right back up; this continued about every mile for the next 30miles (my leg was tired hah).
Each time it would die I would flip the petcock back/forth from ON to RES give it a few kicks and it would start up. The bike seemed like it was starving for fuel but it had plenty. I tried to choke it and that would help to keep it idling but it would still die eventually; especially when I came to a stop; the RPMís would just drop to 0 when I pulled the clutch.
This just happened last night; I finally got the bike home at about 9pm (30miles took about 1.5hrs); so I havenít had much time to fiddle around with it but just wanted to get some insights on if this has happened to anyone else and where to look first.
