Just wanted to introduce myself and ask for some advice. My name is John and I am a fairly new biker. My bike is starting to sputter and die when I throttle but only after riding about 20 miles or so. I have put gas treatment in the tank but it just did it again today, at least I was off the interstate though. Any advice would be appreciated and please remember to "dumb it down" for me. Thanks everyone!
If the bike sat a while before you got it you may have to have the carbs cleaned. First thing to check is the battery connections for tightness and corrosion. Also check the fuel cap vents. You could use compressed air to blow them out.
