Default Why does my bike jerk when throttling...

Hi all,
I gave my bike for servicing a week ago and after that my bike switches off when throttle down and jurks when throttled up. I've shown it to service guy and he says it will be ok.. but after one week still its jurking and switching off..

Looks like there is some dust in your carb jet...either blast the service guys to set it right or try using system G. it helps..

simple thing mixture adjustment screw needs to be adjusted on carburator, it will sole switching off problem.

I am assuming it to be 4-stroke bike, so for jerks on high-revs(i am assuming some sound should accompain jerks), get the tappet setting checked & reset using a simple feeler gauge.

its common on 4-strokes not a big problem, needs 15 minutes to do both things, bash your service guy.
