    idling issue

    I have a cb200t. It starts and idles normally. After about 5 minutes, the idle starts to drop slowly and progressively until it just dies. I let it cool down and this just repeats. Float level, points gap, timing, idle jets clear, plugs all check out. It seems to be a heat issue. Any ideas out there? I'm thinking the coil is toast and gets bad with heat. I just changed the oil. It was full of fuel from lots of hard starting.

    Do you get spark after it heats up?

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.

    Sounds logical. I'll try it as soon as I get to it.
