    bike cutting out at high speed

    hello i have a 97 bird [carb model] that has developed a little problem at high speed the engine cuts out like it has run out of fuel, once pulled over the bike will start with a little choke but sounds like it is running on 3, this only last for a few moments then it clears up and rides fine again this has happend twice in the last month and would like to get it sorted before a trip next month any ideas would be appreciated.



    thanks in advance

    Looks a bit like the tank vent obstructed. At high speed more fuel needed so a vacuum is formed and fuel cannot flow out.
    Easy enough to check the vents I guess. Some one from the carb "community" will be able to help with this!

    To check vent- when it happens, stop. Open filler. If you hear air go in, that's the issue.
    The answer is 42
