suprise Tickover prob!!

Post  bikerbird on Sun Oct 02 2011, 08:25

hiiiiiii i have a 1998 Thundercat and its a bit of a bugger because it seems to keep stalling when its just been started and you are about to move away. I dont think it needs choke because even after a good run out it will do it when you start it again a few minutes later!!! Once you get moving on it you can stop at no end of roundabouts etc and it behaves!! wierd - does anyone have any ideas??? thanks! Rolling Eyes

Hi Bikerbird

The idle adjuster is behind the fairing at your right knee.

Give it a wee twist once the engine is running and you'll soon work out which way is which to increase / decrease the idle speed.

From memory it should be around 1200 I think.

Failing that there is an idle jet inside the carbs and the problem could lie there. Try the idle adjuster first though.

Cheers
