Hye guys I know there have been some other threads concerning the R4 R's (and maybe some of the others) stalling with the clutch in and throttle closed. I haven't had too many problems with that in the past, but I recently had the timing chain tensioner recall done and now my bike stalls all the time, i have to keep the throttle cracked at every stop!

I read most of the other threads and one stated that the engine shutting off at idle has something to do with the timing chain, which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I will say that my bike will idle while stopped and not riding fine, once i engage the clutch coming to a stop and throttle down it dies.

Anyone know what is going on ? I am taking my bike back to the shop to have them look at it, but I am not very optimistic after reading about other guys going back 5-6 times and not having the problem fixed.

Hey Recon how much milage is on your bike now?
I really don't think the timing chain tensioner would have anything to do with your current problem. It's more likely that something else got disturbed , moved and or changed while they were working on your bike recently.
Have them go through everything and give the throttle cable, bodies etc the once over first.

It didn't seem like that could be the issue to me either, but I did see a post where someone was saying that they found the stalling problem (they being a head MV mech, that spoke only italian?) and said that it was something with the timing chain. oh well they are going to go thru the bike next week so I will let you guys know.

Anyone else that has had the stalling problem ever get the problem rectified?
