'06 RMZ450 cutting out when giving gas...HELP!

Recommended Posts

I just bought an '06 RMZ-450 with a fresh top end. Bike started fine when I tested it. However when getting it home today, I started it and let it warm up but as soon as I give it a small amount of gas or put it into gear the engine cuts out. I replaced the spark plug that did look fouled but still have the same problem. Please give me any ideas. Thanks, Nick

sounds lean. if this bike is new to you I'd start with a carb cleaning. while you have it out and cleaning jets out, get the numbers off them and compare them to stock. to me it sounds like they are either too lean or clogged which will result in a lean condition as well. esentially you only have enough fuel to sustain an idle, any added air when opening the throttle throws the mixture off completely and it cuts out.

I gave up and brought it to the shop. I will advise what was wrong with it for anybody's future referenece.
