bike just cuts out!

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by shane2493, May 23, 2006.

  1. ive had this bike maybe 2 months, its my first bike as well so mind the inexperienced question.

    its got about 2400 k's on it. a couple of times when riding, well 3 times, all times ive been at about 40 k's, the bike just cuts out, like all sound, i mean the engine just stops! therefore i cant give the throttle anything. plus it wont start up again till im down to about 10 k's. wat the hell is going on?

    its got a digi screen for a taco and the light stays on showing how many k's im doing and that. any help would be appreciated, i dont want to take it into the shop, i was there 2 weeks ago getting its first service

    thanks its a yammy xt660x
  2. Got to be electrical.

    the power to the speedo etc will help eliminate some things.

    Check all electrical connections, including solder points to back of ignition switch and handle bar controls.

    A wiring diagram and a multimeter are best freind at the moment.
