Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
Hi and thank you for your question.
I need some additional information to be able to help you.
1.) How long had you been riding it that day continuously from when you started to when you went through the idle zone and then it quit?
2.) Have you pulled the spark plugs after trying to start it and see if it is getting spark or if the spark plugs are coming out wet? If not, we need to try that so we can start dividing and conquering this problem. It either lost spark, is not getting fuel or lost compression. Not in any particular order, but those are the 3 elements required to make an internal combustion engine run.
Hi and thank you for the additional information.
2.) Were the plugs wet with gas or water?
3.) Put the plugs back in the coil/caps and lay them on the head away from the open spark plug holes and crank the engine over to check for spark. Give it a test crank with your face and body away from the engine at first in case there is a large quantity of water in the engine. As long as nothing pumps out of the engine as you crank it over with the plugs out, proceed with observing each plug and see if it is sparking.
