Hi! You may want to start on oil change to quiet down the engine. Regarding the cut out, please look for loosen or worn vacuum hoses. You will need to secure them and see how it goes. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    well this is normally quite expensive it would cost about £300 to £400 uk pounds, but this also depends on where you take it to be done, have the tappets been adjusted? this also could be the noisy engine is it a rattle part way down the front? or does it sound like it is top end?, as if the tappets are out this would also cause the other thing to happen, my personal opinion, i would take it to a main dealer to sort, there are to many things that could go wrong if done wrong, and if you do take it to a garage that deals with other bikes check them out to make sure they are competent to work on your bike, unfortunately i did do this and ended up having to buy another zx6r engine at allot of money..

The carbs need a slight mixture adjustment.They are running lean. This is tricky to get it done correctly since you have one place to measure mixture (at the exhaust) but 4 places to adjust(4 carbs). If one carb is too rich and one too lean with the other 2 correct you will get a correct CO reading at the exhaust. This is best left to a specialist.
Valve clearance will also cause issues on a warm engine. Before any carb adjustments are made have the valve clearances checked

    Noisy engines on these bikes are due to worn timing chain and chain guides. Worn shims will also cause too large valve clearance which will also cause excess noise. Theres no easy adjustment as you need to get the camshafts out after careful measurement of the valve clearance. Then measure the actual shim size and calculate from that the shim size needed to get the correct the clearance. The quickest time for me on this repair was 2 hours. Labour is the most expensive part of this repair.
    If the noise goes away when the engine is warmed up (identified by a knocking type of noise) the pistons and sleeves are worn. This is quite an expensive repair.

    You may want to shop around though. You'll find that parts prices vary wildly. Get in touch with one of the Ninja forums to locate a local repair shop.

Engine has rough engine at 1250 revs, tickover is fine and over that is ok too, sometimes cuts out at junctions


Start with cleaning the throttle body, idle air control motor, and MAF sensor. After that, tune up.

Bike cuts out at running temperature


You actually may have two problems. First, if you have a spark from a coil, find out why. May be a bad or loose connection. when coils get hot their resistance increases. A leak or bad connection will show up quicker when hot. If the spark comes from the body of the coil, replace it.
Second, your starter may be breaking down when hot. Check the brushes and coils in the starter motor. The same discussion about loose connections also will apply to the starter.
good luck

Tickover to fast when warmed up.


I don't know the term tickover. If you mean it idles to high then lower the idle. It's a carbed bike right? Idle screw is on backside near front of carb but remember these Twin cams run on oil volume not oil pressure. The bike needs to idle between 1000 - 1200 rpm to maintain proper oil circulation. If you turn the idle down to get that lope or potatoe sound from the bike you can starve the engine of oil and burn it up. These aren't throw away rice rockets of yesteryear.

When you open and close the throttle can you hear the slide hitting the throttle stop?have you removed the slide, and fitted it in the reverse order, this would restrict full opperation of the slide leaving it in the part open position, the cut out side of the slide faces rearmost away from the engine, if you have exsess play in the cable at the carb, it is poss you may have fitted it wrong, unscrew the tickover screw almost all the way until you no longer hear the slide hitting it on throttle closure, start the bike you may have to hold the throttle at the desired revs, whilst doing this screw in the tickover screw until it just increases the tickover, you can now release the twist grip and addjust the idle to suite

Bike starts fine on choke then ticks over when choke off. within 2-3 mins the revs decrease to the point of stalling. have adjusted tick over to around 900 revs but as soon as engine warm the problem re...


If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.

1998 range rover p38 2.5 dse auto engine stalls


Sounds like something is overheating then and possibly a sensor. Not familiar with Rovers but might be a problem with the CAS and/or CPS which tells the ECU the motor is running and when to fire. Also maybe the IAC is bad and when you go from throttle to idle it can't control it and allows it to die.
