Get a Breather


I have a 2017 Bajaj Pulsar 150 and it has recently developed a problem. After starting the motorcycle and riding it for a short distance, it shuts off. Then, when I open the fuel-filler cap, blow air into the tank, and start the motorcycle, it begins working again. What could be the problem?

Hello, Nikhil

From your observatio­n, it appears that the fuel tank’s breather pipe is blocked and is creating an air-lock in the fuel system. Clearing the blockage should solve this problem.
