Sounds like regulator in side panel rear LHS or Alternator or both if battert is able to hold a charge. volt meter on DC setting with bike on idel should give 13.8 volts and rise to at least 15 Volts and no more at 3000rpm. if not disconnect 3 yellow wires into the regulator test the 3 wires running away back to the alternator on AC setting. This is 3 phase AC test i the following pattern terminal 1-2 1-3 2-3 with bike ideling shoul give 15-20volts AC. at 4000 rpm voltage should rise to 56-60 volts AC. With bike turned off test resistance in Ohms. Between phases should be no more than 8 ohms and between each phase to each shold be zero or infinity. if you get any other than the above then you have found your issue. regards Mr.T

Bike wont go past 10,000 rpms. power just shuts out.

These bikes have rev limiters to keep you from blowing the motor. they are supposed to do just that, shut power off if you rev the engine too hard. Usually it cuts out and re-starts very rapidly and you get sort of a Vroom, Vroom , Vroom sound that lets you know you are reving it too much. If you continue to push the motor it will shut power off. 10,000 rpm is a lot of rpm and this could cause major issues with the motor. you don't want a piston to come loose at this rpm!

hi,if it is anything like the 400r,the tensioner will be automatic and non adjustable,normally the chain guides wear out before the adjuster reaches it outer limit,they are quite esay to replace but you need to take the cams out to do it,you will probably find that a lot of the noise coming from the motor is the clutch basket,as a matter of course they are quite noisy once you start to get a few km on the bike...cheers

Idle problem when warmed up

Hi there!

On the carburetor, there is an idle knob. Make sure it is not set too high. This is normal during a cold start so make sure to adjust the idle knob back at 1,100 RPM after your engine is warmed up.

Also, make sure the choke system is clean and is free. Throttle cable should have an allowance of just about .8cm.

The engine idle may also be controlled with the thermostat connected to the grill fan. it will normally idle up to about 2,000 rpm when it senses that the engine is too hot but not 4,000.00 make sure this system is working well.

let me know if this helps
