    I keep breaking stuff-

    Im stumped.
    bike stalled coming off freeway.
    now she will start and run fine. until I lift her vertical then she stalls.
    I can rev and everything.
    she dies as soon as I lift her upright.
    ideas ?
    carbs flooding is where im guessing ?
    I just walked a mile home and about to go back
    ideas would be great.
    plugs are 2 days old.

    I'm guessing he's about out of fuel....Tilted on side-stand it still gets some....straight up the petcock inlet tube breaks the fuel level surface and sucks air......

    lift upright - take off sidestand.*
    just got back.
    I am not out of fuel.
    When opening the drain valves. the right side had very little fuel. the left seemed to be overpressured and lots came out. more pressure than I have ever seen.

    I found that when removing the pod the right side, the slide was stiff and not moving fluidly.
    after wiggling it the bike ran and I lifted her off the sidestand. she ran for around 1 min then stalled and died again.
    hit the gas. stumbled and died.

    meh. frustrating.

    Plugs are clean. No sign of flooding.

    The petcock is on the right side of my tank. and she leans to the left.
    this is not a gas tank issue.

    I have to look on the bright side.
    I didnt burn a hole in my cylinder from being too lean and not noticing something was wrong.
