I just went out for a quick ride tonight and the temp outside is about 0 C. This is the first time that I ride it at this temp, it started fine and ran fine while on the throttle but once I stopped and let it idle for a minute it slowly died down and quit. Once Irestarted it it was idling at about 2000 rpm, I had to turn off the kill switch for a second and back on just before the engine completely stopped, then it idled ok.

Has anyone else experianced this?

You could have an air leak, or you could just be running lean. Remember, colder air temps bring more oxygen into the mix, which leans you out.[/b]

It didnt do it every time. I also only rode for 10 minutes so I'm wondering if the carb or choke was sticking from the cold? I am going to take it for a longer ride tomorow to see if it gets any better.

I think I figured it out, when it die the other day I turned up the idle. So when I turned it back down it stopped doing that. This also helped fix the shifting problem that I posted about before because the idle was set to high from the dealer.
