My 22r needs to last another trip or two this year. The real problem with it (besides the wrist pin rattle and valve train noise) is that it won't idle for me. When I'm cruising along at 50 mph and come to a stop it cuts out. It only happens when I'm on the brakes. If I just roll to about 20 mph and lightly apply brakes it doesn't cut out. On a quick stop it always dies. Sometimes it cuts out when I have the clutch in on a turn.

Can you help diagnose this? I thought it was bad gas, but there is fresh gas in there now and it still cuts out. Are the floats off? I don't know much about carbs. Any help is appreciated.

its got something to do with vaccume, pretty sure because you've got power brakes and it cuts out when you stop real fast...

if you start it up on a level surface will it idle without your foot on the brakes?
