Could anyone help?

Ive been having a few problems with my bike in the last couple of days, the other day i was riding to work and it cut out when i was going 40mph, eeek... then it wouldnt start using the button or choke, until the 6th attempt. At first i thought i may have got dirt in the carb, but now im beginning to think that the coils have got wet, as i rode to work and it pissed down, (having no shelter on the driveway, soaked my bike) am i right in saying this makes it hard to start if they are wet ? any advice would help, as its still under warrenty.. Thanks x.

Thanks guy's

Hey guys took the bike back, they had a look and rode it ten mile's and with my shit luck it didn't cut out or anything and i baffled the mechanic's.

Said if it happen's again bring it back, so well see. Was thinking of cleaning the carb, and buying a bigger jet, thinking it would make it run a bit better, Good idea or not ?

id be inclined to leave the carb alone

and check your ignition first: loose / corroded / dirty electrical connections (it doesn't need much to f$$k 'em up), battery level, new spark plug and HT lead definately a good idea.

Hope that helps

Carb?

It's fuel injected so you can't clean the carb or re-jet. It's also a 2 valve, so without getting the head off there are very few tuning options. Your problem sounds like water in the ignition circuit, which should have been sorted with some WD40 when you took it back. If you let Orwell service it then check it before you leave as they oiled the brakes on my DT and i went straight through the red light in Ranleigh road.
