Tom Posted November 28, 2022 Share Posted November 28, 2022 (edited) Noticed this few days ago. Bike starts up normally on cold starts, float around 1300 or something, but as soon as I'd move out of the garage to the first junction, that's half minute of distance, when I'd put the bike in neutral I saw the bike having higher revs in idle. And I think it would initially stay at whatever my "last" throttle was before pulling the clutch. I would put the bike in neutral, saw the tacho at 2000 rpm which immediately caught my eye (and ear) and then blipped the throttle slowly to lets say 3000 rpm - release the throttle but the rpm's would stay at 3000 and would creep up, but very very slowly. Then, engaging back the gear and moving down the road, if I'd let the bike move without any throttle - the bike would barely roll forward. I thought that high idle would act as "false throttle" when no actual throttle was applied on the grip, but that wasn't the case, when in gear, no throttle meant no throttle. The problem would occur for maybe a minute (bike would be well into operating temp) and then everything back to normal, neutral gear normal idle speed etc. Where do I start looking?
