Question about 2008 Buell 1125R
Having problems with the throttle response on my 1125r. When riding this morning, the throttle was unresponsive up to opening up half way, when suddenly it would fire up to high revs. Is this due to not riding for sometime (cable sticking issues) or a problem with the efi? bike seems to be running rougher than usual aswell.
Could be that you need to do a TPS reset. Buellxb.com has a few videos on their site that will be helpful.

think it's in case of an accident. when bike is on it's side it will cut off the throttle action so nothing (you) won't get stuck between the wheel sprocket/belt.,,

Speed sensor is what it sounds like. Could be as easy as taking it out and cleaning it off. Could be a bad sensor itself or could be the worst thing and it be in the cluster. At least that will get you started that happens all the time on the Harleys and most of the time its something to do with the sensor.,,

HEy bedfords, Sounds like a blocked pilot/idling jet, go get youself some carb cleaner to poor into ypur petrol tank, if that fails then carbs need to come off and cleaned...also check tank for build up of rust,dirt, etc.

I had a problem when I first purchased my bike, I could start the bike 3 times and even after riding the bike would die. I ended up having to have the Harley Dealer come out and pick up the bike to fix it. Turned out, they had to "update the system software" on the bike. Hope this helps.

Try spraying carb cleaner on throttle body then check.If its running smooth then its fuel pump related issue.The fuel filter is either clogged or fuel pump is the cause of problem.Running rough actually indicates towards fuel pump issue.But still get it checked by spraying carb cleaner on throttle body.------ also recheck the heat sensor connections are they getting burnt or loose.If all getting checked ok, then it can be ECU related issue.But first check the fuel pump, filter, heat sensor connections.Also re check if the error code is changed.As you mentioned the buell runs fine with throttle open, it can be tps related error.Tps means throttle position sensor. ----------- If all checked ok, then yes it can be ECU.---------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
