    Default Bike won't stay running

    My bike will start and run for about 30 - 45 seconds then die and wont start again until you wait a couple of hours. I just replaced the spark plugs and it still does the same thing. Anyone have any ideas?

    Sounds like a fuel delivery problem . Check fuel pump pressure , filters , pinched line ,etc

    There is a good possibility that the Pingle fitting has plugged, I have seen it before in bikes. The Pingle fitting is where the fuel on/off lever is located under the tank and the lines attach. This is definitely a possibility...Mike

    Some questions, in the process of draining the tank through the pingle fitting if it is clogged it won't drain correct? If it drains fine I can assume the fitting is ok, is that right? If there is a problem with the tank vent, if I remove the gas cap that should bypass that issue right? Then I would know that was the problem. Finally how do I check the fuel pressure?

    First off is you bike fuel injected or carb . If it's carb there is a small filter inside the fuel inlet that could be dirty . If your Pingel flows that is not your problem . If you remove the gas cap your tank would be vented . A fuel pressure gauge would have to be installed inline between the fuel pump and the carb .
    If your bike is fuel injected that's a whole other subject . Good luck

    If the ignition control module has taken a dump,
    it could cause this issue.......
    Might be worth replacing it, if you have no luck
    with a possible fuel issue.........
