Stalling Domi

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by munecito, Mar 5, 2007.

  1. Hey guys,

    Today I was coming home under the rain and in two ocassions the domi stalled when I depress the clutch lever to downshift.

    I stopped on the side of the road and tried to start the bike. It did start but both times it backfired.

    After that it didn't miss anymore. I was thinking it may be the fuel? I filled it up before the rain. Maybe there is water or dirt in the fuel? or may it be an electrical issue that appeared with the moist?

    Any inputs?


  2. could have been water in/around the plug/lead.

    Also check tank vent and vacuum line to the fuel tap
  3. Thanks

  4. hey, what was the actual outcome of this?

    From what i understand, backfiring means your running the bike to lean (ie a mixture where there is more air than there is fuel [correct me if im wrong]), so from the previous post, checking the breather line does make sense - but i'm interested to hear what you've done.
