    Stoplight dies & greasy rear motor belly?

    #1)
    About every ride my XB12 dies once & only once at stoplights for no explainable reason. Is this common?

    #2)
    The rear bottom of my motor/tranny is covered in grease/oil. I've never found a single droplet under the bike but it's got me worried.

    You should just spray paint over the grease/oil. Problem solved. Also, spray 2 cans of spray paint directly into the throttle body. Spray paint fixes everything

    If one of us actually tried to help you would you listen? Or just tell us we're stupid and do it your way. like you did when TWO professional painters commented on your painting thread and you poof canned a perfectly good motorcycle.

    #1 Yes, there is an explainable reason. You just need to find it*. and No, dying at a light isn't common (or good) for ANY motorcycle.

    #2 You have found the drops**. They are on "The rear bottom of my motor/tranny".








    * The answer you get can only be as good as the question you ask.

    I wish someone would have told me about spray paint BEFORE I spent all that money on tools and diagnostic equipment.
