Mid-run -stall

I was riding my 2004 EX 250 (stock) when it just cut out as if it ran out of gas.

It was dark, so I walked it home 1/2 a mile.
Next day I see it had some (1/2 a gallon of) gas.
I put more in 1/2 gallon and 2 more fresh gallons.

Now it won't idle. Won't even start
I got it to start on Starter fluid, but only for as long as I spray.

Fuel comes through line and filter, when I crank it with the line off.

Anybody got any really smart ideas ?

I really don't want to take these cars off or apart..

Please, any help is appreciated.

Back on the road, sort of

347 views, and not one suggestion ?

Anyway, it turned out some water got into the gas and that was it, some weeks later and several hours taking things apart and putting back together.

Still doesn't idle right and never ran the same since....

Anything that OI can add to the gas to make it clean the system out Including carburators ?

Drain all the fuel, add fresh, and seafoam, or Sta-Bil Marine 360.

A.T.G.A.T.T so I may ride another day. www.rockthegear.org

I'm not your mom and I'm not paying for your parts, so do whatever you want with your own bike.
