engine will idle but dies when I crack the throttle.

Recommended Posts

the bike will idle okay but as soon as I give it throttle the engine dies. I was riding it going 65 mph and it felt like it was missing now and then. I came to a stop and when the light turned green it died when I opened the throttle. the tank is full and the petcock is working. any ideas?

thanks.
