My R1100S came over all shaky at tick-over & I guessed that maybe the throttle cable/bodies needed syncing.
I've got the gauges but have never attempted it before. I checked YouTube for advice and went ahead.
It seemed that the left throttle cable/body was pulling less vacuum than the right, so i adjusted that one using the throttle cable adjustment. I then set the idle with both screws.
I've now returned to a smooth even tick-over and even pull at higher revs.
One thing concerned me.
When I pulled off the little rubber seal/plug (to attach the gauge tube) I noticed that it was wet with what appeared to be fuel.
The little rubber seal/plug on the right was dry.
I'm wondering now whether there might be an underlying problem?
Also, the shakiness at tick-over seemed to come on quite suddenly, as if maybe something had failed, rather than it all just slowly going out of adjustment.
Any thoughts would be most welcome.
Got a technical query? Found another 0.02bhp? Ask/tell the world.
