Why does it idle but not anything elts?

Recommended Posts

I have an 07 sm and it will idle but if you give it any throttle it just bogs and dies. I took the carb off and took the float bowl off cleaned the carb out and it was perfectly clean. when I put it back on it ran good long enough for me to get down the street. Now back to the same. I had just been riding the bike before it started to do this. Any suggestions? thank you in advance.:applause:

yup gas will come out if I drain the bowl while running. That leads me to belive that gas is atleast getting in the bowl.

It has VP c12 in it and I had just ridden it the day before, parked it over night (it rained) then rode it about 5 miles, parked it and when I went to start it to go home it would barely run at all choked it and it would only idle on choke and if you give it gas it dies.
