chugging

The old girl has developed an ailment.....when I start her up she doesn't sound silky smooth, more like a twin. Riding into town today she stalled five times - never done that before.

The motot is quite distnctively hesitant and growly under 4k revs. Out in the country she'll rev away and pull like a good un above 5k revs right up into double figures, but she's not happy going slow.

Any suggestions?

I think my baby is heading towords the same wall :-(
For a temp fix (until the air filter gets here) was to up the idle some to prevent the bike from stalling at a high speed upshift.
I am hoping some new plugs, air filter and basic adjustment can make the difference.

it sounds like your EBS relay is going bad, need replacement. Did have the same symptoms with mine. Replaced EBS relay and it cured my problem. Try it.

How do you go about getting a new EBS relay, I have had very little success getting much out of my MV UK importer.

Your bike looks like a 2007 1000R or later ?..It hasn't got an ebs relay. It has an ebs solenoid valve but the control is in the ECU.

I'd keep this simple to start with,

Revise your state of service..Is she up to date..oil filters...etc

First..Fuel..air ..spark

Your bike has been laid up over winter..have you got some water in the fuel. Is the fuel stale ? Modern fuels don't like being left dormant..They soak up water...and stratify in the tank leaving lovely water at the bottom...Have a look in the tank..are there bubbles indicating a hose loose in the tank ?
When was the last time the fuel filter was changed ?
Is the tank vent clear ? If not you'll get a vacuum in the tank..Not good for fuel flow.

I'd be tempted to drain the tank and swill it with fresh fuel anyway ..empty again and then refit ..filling with fresh fuel.

Air filter..Is it clean....Be careful when re-fitting the well nuts tho ( preferable use riv nuts )

Have a look at the plugs. Especially after she's been running rough.

Are some of the plugs wet . Does the exhaust smell of unburnt fuel.

It's just a matter of going through things slowly and systematically.

On the engine management front..Prime suspect would be the lambda sensor bolted in the cat..

If it were my bike..I'd do the air filter, plugs and fresh fuel as i said..and then take it for a good blast down the Great Glen !

Hope you fix it..

joe

funnily enough, my recently bought brand new 1078rr has had a bout of stalling on the approach to roundabouts (u.s friends google em) Ive found that it only happens on the initial warm up ! use the little choke near your right thumb and it doesnt happen...also stick redex/forte gas treatment (or an equivilent) fuel detergent into your fuel once a month... keep the fuel system nice and clean

Keep 'er lit up to f***
