    Engin dies on hard breaking.

    So I went for a ride last night and noticed my engine would die when aggressively coming to a stop. The tank was over 3/4 full. Any thoughts on what it could be?

    Mine did that when the choke was partially pulled out. I pushed the choke in and all was good. The only other thing I can think of is the float isn't set correctly. Is the idle mixture screw 2 to 2 1/2 turns out?
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Turn up the idle speed and see if problem persists.

    With the throttle closed you are completely on the idle circuit or jet. How long has it been since you rode it last? The idle jet or carb could be a little clogged.
    The motor may start fine, cold and warm, and run good but just not be able to idle with the throttle closed for a long period of time, like coming to a stop.

    But I've had this issue and it was different things every time...air cleaner, bad spark plug, carb a bit dirty.

    Start with the easy things first.

    Perhaps a dumb question,but are you locking up the rear wheel with your hard braking?

    Perhaps another dumb question, but could you try perhaps not braking so aggressively?

    Open your clutch when braking that hard.
