Without going into great detail (on the bike just turning off and dying part) the newest problem is while riding the throttle stops responding with the bike on. If I am cruising along at 70 MPH with a fixed position on the throttle, it is as if all of a sudden the bike just acts as if you stopped giving it gas and starts to slow down or sometimes jerks... if I rev the engine I get no response, the throttle seems to be dead or disconnected. Then as I’m coasting to pull over, just as mysteriously as this began, it comes “back to life” and starts to respond again. This happens several times mid ride and is very dangerous.

Please note when this occurs the bike is still running and has full power. It is just as if the throttle or the cable is disconnected or something.

I did take the throttle cables off when I cleaned the carbs but I thought I put everything back exactly as was and I checked all of the throttle cables and nothing looks out of the ordinary.

Any have any suggestions or have this happen before?

Cheers

RJ
How does your throttle actually feel with the problem. Does it go light or feel different in any way?
I have only had my cables to bits once when i fitted my fcr. If i remember right there are a lot of holes in the linkage. Maybe you have placed the cable lug! in the wrong hole. I think i forsaw a possible issue but happend to choose the right option. Maybe someone has a photo of the oem setup.

Did you find a solution to this? The original post was back in September, so I am assuming you fixed her.....what was it?

Always useful for future reference if I have a similar fault.

You're absolutely right.

What a plum I am.

Well, I was reading the post over my cornflakes early this morning, with my eyes propped open.

Now I feel REALLY stoopid!!!

Back to the plot.....this sounds like an Engine Management problem. Doesn't the EMU have a 'get u home' mode it enters if there is a problem? Is this what it is doing perhaps? Or something similar.

My Thruxton was misbehaving and they found a loose connector block under the tank. Check all those. And that one on the side of the throttle bodies.....I was eyeing that with suspicion the other day......thats right in a place that will get really wet!

You guys are funny, but back to the dangerous issue of the throttle just dying and the bike acting as if it is in neutral and as if you are not twisting the throttle at all, yes it is still happening.

Any suggestions?

thanks

I'd borrow (cos they're expensive) another set of HT leads and ride the bike long enough for the fail to occur if it's going to. If it doesn't, I'd buy the HT leads.
