My bike started running really rich all of a sudden. Can't oppen throttle without it dying on me.???????

Ran great this morning, fresh gas, is it running on just one cylinder??? If so what do I do?

Check your air filter and make sure theres no clogging. Fire it and try to gas it with the filter off. Check for spark on both cylinders if anyone has tools. If you're at a car show someone should have tools.

try changing the plugs if you have the tools to do so
good luck

Are there anymore Buells? Mayube someone there has ECM Spy and will let you hook up and see what's going on?

I disconnected the battery, let it cool down, and put fresh gas in it.

After I let it set for 2hrs I got it running. Had no problems after that. I think it might have been bad gas.

Made the 100 mile trip home no problem, having a blast at the same time.

Thanks for the info, by the way there were close to 20,000 bikes and I only seen 2 tube frame Buells. So a ratio of 1/5,000 for the Buells since my girlfreind had hers, love it, didn't see one XB which kind sucks cause it is always nice to see another.
