Question 2005 fe550 stalling

Hi, My husband bought a nice fe550 and has been having a ton of fun on it, but it recently started stalling. Just DIES while he is riding, but starts right back up. Did this 5 or 6 times today. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

valve clearances or pilot jet blocked but if running fine cols = valve clearances and if awful cold I'd say PJ.

Taffy, Thanks for the reply. I just wanted to say that the bike is running fine and suddenly dies, but will start right back up and runs fine, then dies again and will start back up....over and over! Appreciate any feedback regarding what could be wrong. Thanks

Try killswitch, particularly if it's that stupid combined starter button underneath the push on/ push off switch. They are crap and sometimes earth out over bumps.

try the cheap stuff like a new plug and cap. I have a tool that checks the spark for ignition timing called a strobe or strobe light. by attaching that and watching it flash merrily, at the point of stalling the spark/flash will either stop before the engine or keep going until the engine stops.

what does the plug look like?

Check the gas tank cap and make sure it is venting properly. A poorly venting cap will cause the carb to run out of fuel but then slowly fill up again.

Also the fuel taps may be clogged. If the bike was sitting for a long period of time with regular pump gas in it there is a good chance they are full of gunk. Replacing all of the fuel lines and taps (along with a carb rebuild) may be in order. Pump gas these days is horrible and just clogs everything up if left sitting for awhile. If you will not be riding for a month or so completely drain the fuel from the tank and carb.
Thanks from Rainerio and canolman

I appreciate all the input, but we still haven't figured it out. He adjusted the valves again. The spark plug and cap are fine. It seems like when it gets hot it just dies, but starts right back up, then dies again. Sure would like to figure it out cause this bike is a blast when she runs!
