flooding on downhill?

Recommended Posts

going down a twisty rough downhill this weekend using engine braking and just before bottom the bike dies. acts flooded. nearly killed the battery trying to restart. disconnected lights to save battery and by the time I got that done it starts right up. What do you think happened? This is the only time it's done this.

I am having the same problem. The bike loads up going down choppy sections and will die unless I pull in the clutch and rev it.

What's the usual repair? New needle, seat, pin?

Kick stand switch is removed. float level is at 12mm. It only did this one time so I think it was just a fluke with that particular hill. I do believe I'll be adding kick soon though.
