Hey guys,

SO this past weekends ride out and the weekend's before, I have had a recurring issue with my bike stalling out. Now to be clear, it only happens when I am coming off the throttle quickly. Example: Playing in a mud hole giving it some good throttle, then I let off to shift to reverse or to avoid an obstacle etc, the bike stalls out. It will sit and idle fine all day long. Only after being heavy on the throttle and coming off it does it want to die, it doesn't do it every time but going to say 75% of the time it does. Air Filter is cleaned regularly and spark arrester is cleaned out as well. Ideas? Is it just a matter of the idle being too low when I come off the throttle abruptly?

Thoughts? Ideas?

08 BF 750. All Stock.

No I haven't put a snorkel kit on it, everything is the way it came from the factory.

It may help a bit. A pain to get to to try but you could do it.

the kebc fork is what the actuator on top of the CVT cover moves. It moves the fork to apply pressure to the bearing on the end on the primary. I saw that this pressure was often enough to kill the bike. I removed mine and it's been a lot better.

Will Upping my idle help it at all? and what is this fork you speak of?
That's what I did (idled up slighytly) and seems alot less frequent.

Mine only stalls now when I hit water too fast......any ideas on that one?

KMK if your not snorkeled the splashing of hitting water fast or even the steam of water hitting your hot engine will make it stall.. Doesn't have to be deep water.

I didn't just remove the fork, I took all that stuff off of mine. Removing the fork is allot easier than what I did but accomplishes the same thing. Unless I'm going down a pretty steep incline and let the engine return to idle I don't even notice it being gone.

i like not having the fork in however it will stll cause problems if the actuator goes.
Removing it completely like IBBruin (DG-6 module) has takes that little problematic piece out of the equation all together.

Do it to it brotha! It's a quick job.
here's the steps:
Remove actuator
Remove CVT Cover
Remove snap ring on the end of fork
Pull out fork
Put CVT Cover back on, install actuator.

honestly i only miss it at SRATV because the hills are huge. other than that you wont notice it. The engine brake still works it just doesnt under 5mph.

here is the link IBBruin posted from my buddy big nate's site, ATVPT

yep, less than 5 mph unless you blip the throttle to engage the belt.

So why can some crappy ol' 350 or 420 Honda :))) hit the same puddle and nothing?

it's the way the airbox is designed. if you look the air intake is directly above the front header. granted there's a splash shield there but it dont stop the steam.
