comment Keeping floor mats from moving - no hook on car floor
While this can be a good solution, this is a bad answer. Simply linking to outside content is not welcome (if link becomes unavailable, the value of this answer rapidly goes to zero). Elaborate, quote, post images.

Voted to close, not because the idea of the question is bad, but because it is incomplete. Provide more information about the specific motorcycle and the exact problem you are having, and we shall consider reopening.

comment Carburetted motorcycle stalls when accelerator is applied
I have read, however, that incomplete combustion and misfiring might, on the contrary, indicate rich condition? Again, I would have to confirm by checking the spark plugs for “wetness”. And still, that does not explain, why it worked fine for two days, and then decided to quit.
