I really appreciate the response here on this forum. Yesterday, I put full tank of premium gas w/o ethanol, full can of seafoam. rode home (parked her at work after it died twice, friday) it ran OK. I am not impressed with the smoothness of the motor. the first thing I did when it happened I turned the reserve on. I have took apart the whole fuel system, cleaned carb, new filter, carb cleaner on the petcock. I know there is a vacuum issue with the gas cap, I can hear the hissing when I shut her down. I'm not sure the sea foam will solve my problems, on the way home I thought it could be sticking floats. but with only less than 3K miles on the bike, I don't know. could be 2700 miles of low quality gas till I got it. my bikes get premium treatment, I do hear the fuel pump when I turn it on till I get pressure.
