Next problem after bogging down.

While trying to deal with bogging down problem i took bike over to get gas and added about 3oz of Seafoam.Headed home a mile or two and the bike just died. Got the truck and pulled it home, was able to pop clutch and start it but it was running really rough. Once home I put on charger. After charging it. It started upand sounded good and ran fine. Im thinking of changing the solenoid. If not that. Maybe alternator. I really appreciate your thoughts.

The solenoid did not make it die or cause it to run bad. The charging system may have a problem.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

IMHO, 3 oz. of Seafoam isn't enough, fill the tank and then add a whole can. Run the full tank through to get the deposits out.

Bad battery? Clogged fuel filter?
