Guys
Need some help here.
On my 04
swing at times the rpms go
down to about 3 to 5
k rpms and
it has done this several
times. I have
tried using other gas.
But still does this. When it
does this i hit the throttle
some and sometimes that helps.
BUT then sometimes it
does not.
Like yewterday morning i
tried to start the swing but it did not want to
start. I saw that the reserve light
was on si added fuel.
and that started the bike. BUT the
rpms were very low
for a couple of minutes.
So then i gave it the throttle
and that took care of it.
But why does the rpms
go so low??
i will be back in 3 days to
read ny rsponses.
thanks
Ghost rider G

Greg,

Do you think you have a clogged fuel filter or something? Hopefully others here will have some helpful hints on this problem.

I gather this happens while you are out riding your S'wing.
Just some ideas that I would have a look at:
You may have picked up some dodgy fuel somewhere, firstly,I would look at cleaning the injectors with some specific cleaning agent in the fuel. Be careful, dont use too much. A vacuum guage check could pick up other problems like sticky valves. The fuel filter may be clogged as well, so do a fuel pressure check before and after the filter. You should be able to buy the necessary tuning equipment at your local accessory store, or borrow them from someone who has them. Sorry, mine are out on loan already.
It could also be running rich... check your sparkplugs for carbon, and restrictions in the exhaust. If $$$$ permit, upgrade your plugs to iridium ones. They cost more, but foul up less.

Check the battery voltage. My 04 did the same thing till I bought a new battery.

Guys
thanks for your advice on my swings rpms
running about 500 rpms. That was every
now and thenand i did go buy some stp
fuel injector cleaner and i put it in.. The
only times the rpms would run that low
were when i first started the bike up..
I will let you know if the problem
continues. I asm thinking it maybe trash
in the fuel cuz even my honda
lawnmower acts funny. Yeah won't
start at times for a month. But then
sometimes it will fire right up and run
well for a few days..
THANK YOU for your advice

I have only ridden the bike 2 times
this week and it still does the low
rpm thing. BUT not as bad as it
was. I did put the fuel injector
cleaner in last week and still have
about 1/4 tank left. Should i put
more stp fuel injector cleaner
in the next tank of gas???
