I need some help with a problem I have been having with my Honda XR650L dual sport. About two weeks ago I replaced the battery on the bike and since then the bike will just cutout when driving it. It will cutout and re-fuses to start and then after a minute or two it will restart and then do the same thing all over again. The bike will cutout and die within a block from my house, so it seems to cutout more when it is cold. I can try to run it for awhile then it seems to get better and it will not cutout at all This is driving me crazy!!At first I thought that maybe I had gotten some bad gas, so I drained the tank and cleaned the carb and put some fresh gas in the tank and that didn’t make a difference. I have also checked the battery connections, fuses, coil connections, plug cap . The side stand switch has been bypassed. Any input anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!!
