Hello everyone I hope you all made it home safe from the trails, I live in prime location for dirtbiking, was able to get my hands on a 02 BRP, today was my first day riding it on the trails and man o man it was an experience. Many issues I discovered today. Is there a good doctor in the Los Angeles area?

Hey Mauser thanks for the reply, so I'm going to try to explain it with as much info as I know. Bought the bike two weeks ago on the test drive all I noticed was a hanging idle, but on the 60mile ride home the bike would die on me after i got up around 65mph I pulled over kicked it 2 or 3 times and it would start up again, then again it started jerking and popping on the freeway at Anything over 60mph Took it to the honda dealer to have them rebuild carb and jet it because the mechanic said it was running lean a week after the bike runs smooth and idle remains stableto and from work. Today on the way to the trails on the freeway was running nice and smooth until I hit anything over 70mph the bike would start losing power and eventually die on me same scenario I'd pull over and start it back up. Finally made it to breakfast safely not wanting to turn around and get on the freeway to deal with the same crap again I decided to proceed to the trails with my buddies, once there no problems what so ever related to this situation(do have suspension issues to work out) the bike ran nice. So after riding the trails for a couple hours I was headed back to the freeway and my bucking bronco hahaha. Once I made it home safely I looked up this forum for some help.

Valves!
You know you have to adjust the valves rather often on this bike, like every 2000km or so?
Do that first, oh wait no, learn how to do that first... as this bike has an auto-decomp and may not 'turn back' the crank nothing, not even a millimeter!
Set them correctly and I bet your problems are gone, if not holler here again Bump

Just to add to the mix.
Could be an issue with float height. If the previous owner had been having issues with the bike flooding he could have been adjusting the float height to reduce the amount of fuel in the float bowl. When you fully open the throttle fuel can not get in quickly enough and there is not enough fuel in the float bowl to cover it. Set the float height to the standard setting, also checking that the float valve, all the jets and fuel lines from the carb are clear. Modern petrol becomes green gunge in carbs if it is left to dry out.
Other alternatives are a partial block of the tank vent tube creating a vacuum in the tank and preventing fuel from flowing.

I agree with Hew, sounds like she's emptying the float bowl....I would check fuel line and filter on the fuel tap...?
