First big ride on new bike

Recommended Posts

So today was my first big ride on my new bike. When I was going down hills I would hold the clutch in and let the bike just go but it died 2 times from doing this. Is it just the carb? Should I clean it?

This could be caused by a few things.  I wouldn't think dirty carb at first.  Assuming it runs well all the rest of the time, I would check clutch adjustment first. If the clutch is not fully disengaged, then locking up the rear tire on a down hill could drag the motor down and stall it.  Also make sure your idle speed is high enough.
