Hi Anonymous, sounds like a fuel problem. Check your fuel filter and tank for water, dirt, rust, fuel valve vacuum line for crackes, fuel line to carb for kinks or restrictions, carburator for low or stuck float, low speed jet clogged, intake leak at manifold seals. Good luck

Why would my cycle shut off when it's idling & I rev it?

Hi, Irishcna and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

Is a V-Twin exhaust bike good for racing?

A bike with v-twin exhausts are not usually preferred while racing as they are considered to be heavy and will weigh the driver down.

Trying to adjust the idle speed. running at 1500 instead of 1250 rpm

The idle speed is controlled by the bikes computer, the ECU. The 1500RPM idle is normal. If you purchase a Race ECM from Erik Buell Racing ( you can get one with a slightly lower idle programming. The bike does not like to idle low, hence the 1500RPM stock idle.

The idle speed is controlled via a servo motor and the engine management computer. It will idle fast when the engine is cold and first started.

If the idle speed is much higher than 1000RPM when the engine is warm, I would check for sticking throttle cables especially if you have added bar backs or bar risers. Check the throttle twist grip to make sure it is free and snaps back when released. These sometimes get sticky especially if the bike was dropped or dirt has accumulated under the throttle tube. Usually a high idle on a K1200RS is caused by some mechanical problem with the throttle or cruise control (if your bike has cruise)

Hope this helps

Kawasaki Kit ECU on '07 ZX-6R race bike

Hi, Simon_mcaule the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable race shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. Not being able to pull codes really puts you in the dark, could be a faulty connection in the ignition circuit or you may have a temperamental ECM that doesn't like aftermarket performance parts, a face to face with your fuel tuner may also be in order.

At idle speed my 2000 GL1500se races between 1000 rpm to 1500 rpm. I have tried to solve the problem by running several tanks of fuel with an additive, to no success. please help

Have you adjusted your idle speed adjustment knob in the gas cap housing. Idle speed should be 800 +/- 80 rpm If the idle speed cannot be adjusted there then you either have the throttle linkage binding or there is something preventing the venturi butterfly from closing. Something may have dropped into your carburetor and is wedged in there.

Bike engine races when hot +fuel spills from carb the bike is a stroll 50cc

It sounds like the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned. While it is apart, inspect the float valve for wear, replace if worn. Also make sure there are no air leaks between the carb and the engine.

Plugged carburetor jets and/or intake leaks can cause lean running and poor idle.
