Post some photos of this entity. I am somewhat lost as to what you guys are talking about.
Pics coming just for you
Also, it is hard for people to help me diagnose without knowing what is up. Here is a pm I sent Alelks.
How's it going man? I've been busy lately but managed to get a dune trip in. I didn't ride the R450 much with the 250R running as good as it is. But once I had it out and was going to wail off a big dune. Was hitting some gears and it DIED at the bottom of the dune. Man was I glad that it did it at the bottom!
Anyhow, it died and never tried to keep running no matter what I did. It was electrical at that time. The FI light was blinking. I waited for a few minutes and it just started up and ran fine. Headed back to camp and it died the same way again. Just dead. So I looked at some connections. Seemed that the terrible mounting that Yoshi came up with on the PIM was giving me fits. The velrco was coming off. It was pulling hard enough that the big main plug was about half way undone. I was happy to see this and was convinced that once I got that problem fixed, I would be good to go.
Well..... then I take care of that and stay close to camp and just hit the drag strip for a little bit. First time I went to race, the bike was trying to die(different than before), sounding like a lack of gas this time. I shut the bike off and heard the pump "gargling" so I was sure it wasn't getting the proper fuel. Took it back to camp and didn't ride it anymore.
I was sure the swirl tank screen was the issue. I have mine out but can't really tell that it is dirty. Have you messed with yours? Any other ideas?
