I could use a suggestion or two.
I have a 2009 C50 that I picked up a few months ago.
I was coming home from a little ride and it died at a stop sign.
After that it sounded like it was firing on one cylinder so I thought
it might be dirty fuel injectors. I pull the throttle body, popped the
injectors out and cleaned them with carb cleaner.
Put it all back together and Bingo, back to running on both jugs.
Seems to run pretty good. Accelerates well & runs 70-80 easy
enough. New plugs & Air filter.
But now it started dying when I start it up and let it (try) to idle.
Seems to run ok until I come to a stop and then it's DOA again.
Starts up with no problem. As long as I keep it RPM's up it stays
running. But if I don't, it dies.
I have arthritis in my hands pretty bad and it hurt my hands to do
all the work so I hope it isn't a matter of needing to pull it apart again.
At my age I much prefer to ride rather than wrench.
But I really don't want to take it to the stealer. When I went to buy the
o-rings for the injectors they were trying to get me to buy a fuel pump.
I don't see that as the problem or it wouldn't start & run.
So what do you think? Any ideas what I should look for?
Thanks for any suggestion. AND Double thanks if it works.馃榿

In a fairly full tank of fuel, add 6 oz of #2 diesel fuel.
Run it, or ride it for a short while, and if there is any clogging in the throttle body/injectors, it will be history.

Might check for contaminate in the fuel tank. Have had two C50s that sat for some time before I got them. The first one just clean the injectors and flush tank.
The second one took much time and trouble to get the tank cleaned up. I would flush tank and run for short time and have to clean the injectors again. Flushed tank with B-Bs and muratic acid to finally get it acceptable.

Its an ongoing thrilling adventure. Ive done that too. But I'm fairly stubborn so I'm not admitting defeat
