Anyone got any idea as to what is happening? Was on the highway to pick something up in Kempton Park and the bike kept trying to die under me whilst doing 120km/h on the highway. When I rode her this morning out of my yard for the first time today it suddenly cut out in 2nd gear. The surging on the highway was so bad it wanted to throw me off with and coming off of throttle.
Just the tip and only for a minute..

When I started her after cutting out there was a loud backfire.. had to start her again and then she started. Idling is fine and there's no dodgy noises.. giving gas at idle is also okay.. I'm stumped.

Possibly dirt in the carb.

just a simple question. How much fuel in the tank. Mine seems to do that when the fuel is low. Throw her over to reserve and there we go again, till the next petrol station. Put juice, throw her back to normal and she is a okay Just a though

I had actually just filled up at Sasol.. Took her to Doc and he did the side stand switch bypass and now she's fine again. There's an amazing thread on one of the KLR forums from a guy who experienced the exact same thing I did.. he bypassed the switch and his problem also went away.

I was in the middle of the bush in the Inanda Valley a few weeks ago and we stopped for a "water" break. When I started her up again she died everytime I put her into gear. I fiddled with the side stand and noticed that the cable wasn't pushing in when i lifted the stand. Pushed it in and Voila. Same thing at all the stops on the way home.
Got home and bypassed the switch. No more issues.
