Hi guys, I have a problem with my wifes '04 aero I hope someone can solve for me. I took the tank off the bike to get it resprayed and when I put it back on I started it up. It started up straight away and ran for a few seconds then died. Tried starting it with the choke, no luck. Got it started with a bit of throttle and it'll run as long as I have the throttle on a bit. Let it off and it idles roughly and then dies. When I have it running if I pull the choke on at all it dies. When I start it with the throttle on it blows smoke and stinks like its running way too rich. Please help, my wife will kill me if she thinks I've stuffed up her bike.

  • DID YOU HAVE TO MESS WITH THE AIR BOX TO REMOVE

  • MINE DID THAT AND IT ENDED UP BEING A AIR LEAK

  • Check the petcock valve. It's a known problem.
