Cutting out

Does the bike idle at all when warm? Have you tried tweaking the idle screw a bit?

Welcome Robbie,more info really,

What do you do to restart the bike after it cuts out?

Did you fit an inline fuel filter ?

Will the bike restart using the choke?

When it cuts out have you released the fuel cap and listened for a vacuum?

If the bike won`t restart after throttle only or choke only remove that sparkplug to see if it`s wet with fuel.

Hi Robbie78 and welcome to the site:smile

As Jaffa90 says it could be the fuel cap breather being blocked(common on this bike)and as he says more info would be good,like when was it last serviced,when did the problem start,does the bike start straight away after cutting out?or does it take quite a long time?.Try opening the fuel cap ever mile,if it stays running you've found your problem.If not give more info to come up with another solution.Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

Fuel filter

I use the start button to restart the bike ,when it does fire I use the throttle to keep the rev up and away I go...when I throttle down the revs dip down to almost cut off point....not sure about a inline filter...filter inside the fuel tank seemed to be clean ...fuel drained through it ok and I blew it out with air......will try the fuel cap thing on the way home......thnx

the carb breather pipe

The carb breather comes off the float chamber, if it is wrongly positioned so that it is in the airflow, even the modest performance of the GZ could create a positive air pressure situation in the chamber, making it run way too rich. Check its routing and position it so it isn't facing forwards or backwards, up by the battery box or on top of the airbox is a good place.
