Motor cuts out

I thought I should start a new post, hopefully someone can help me out. When I pull on either brake lever the motor quits. With the bulb for the brake light removed .it doesn't happen.the engine still runs. Any ideas?There is no kill switch.Is it possible someone crossed the wires with the kill switch wire?

Re: Motor cuts out

maybe the bulbs in backward.

lol.

DISCLAIMER I wish I knew....

Reverse the steps you took 4 days ago when you could not shut off the bike and use the decompresor as a kill switch

I wished I could.I really didn't do anything but adjust the carb so she would idle. She still cut out when I pulled the brake lever to stop while riding.I thought the carb just needed more adjustment. I didn't realize the brakes were killing the motor until back at my garage.

Re: Motor cuts out

Yes, and a new brake light bulb of proper wattage(10 watts probably) usually fixes it.

Re: Motor cuts out

Holy crap lol. Touch brake kills the bike. Sounds like wires switched around in the kill switch or wiring harness

Re: Motor cuts out

What about a bad ground somewhere?
