Well since i took it to pidcock for a service the thing dont run right at all. Having cold start problems.
The bike will fire up and rev's go to 2K. Then after a couple of sec's they start to drop till it get to 1k then it cut's out. If you try to start it again it sound as though it's flooded. plus when you first start riding it it's jerky as hell. Ive even tryed running with the DB in.
Any ideas anyone. It was running fine before service now run's [email protected]@T.
Pidock ant taking responsibly for it. so ive had to book it back in at cmc.....

Could this be because my valves ant set right?

valves only go amiss when you don't keep them well lubricated. if you've been good with your oil levels and changes, they should be fine.

it's not uncommon for a garage to deny they've done anything wrong. you read about it often. it may not be their fault, though. but if they're the last ones to have touched it, and you haven't, then it's likely their problem. you'll have a hard time making them agree with that, though.

They was the last people to have my bike. All they said was it could be a electrical problem.

They said my valves was very tight. But when i went to pick it up they was rattling like mad. As ive never had my valves done, thought it was a bit loud. went to cmc to pick up some rear pads and wasn't till a mercanic came over and told me my valves was rattling. Took it straight back to pidcock when they said three of the valves had come lose and they have tightened them back up. But the bike was warm when they did this.... Ive always been on top of oil and filter changers. Now i wish i hadnt bothered trying to say to £50 And book it straight in at cmc....

yes as white said, it will be hard for them to take responsibilty because they dont know that they was the last one to work on. even tho it was they dont know that!
its probley somthing really simple!
cmc have a good review so they will be able to tell wats up wiv it!

Is it possible that it is something to do with the choke?
Or the idle setting?

We don't have a choke anymore Fish; it's all auto.
Is our idle manually adjustable? I thought it was set by the ECU

Exactly... the auto choke could be the prob?
And I believe it IS set manually... not sure. May of read it somewhere in the manual...

The idle is set to 1.5k-1.3k. When the bikes warm it stays there..

The cold running enrichment is a lookup table in the ecu, nothing you can alter. You can alter the idle speed, there is a small screw on the side of the throttle body.

And Chippy, if several people misunderstand how Pythagorus theorem and post that on the internet how they wrongly interpret it, does that disprove pythagorus? No it just means more people have got it wrong and have displayed their error

There must be a sensor involved for the choke though surely?
Is it possible that it isn't working properly?

There is no choke, it's a throttle body, there is a coolant temperature sensor, this when the coolant is cold will be referenced against a lookup table in the ecu and the ecu will lengthen the injector period, thus richening the mixture.
