Accereration Hesitation--first and second gear
My 03 LT has only 15k on it. All service has been done by dealer including the 12K not long ago...............
When starting off in first, as I let the clutch out, there is a "chugging" of the engine for a second or two until a little speed ( or RPM?) is built up then the engine smooths out. When I shift to second, ditto as I start out in second.
This is my first K12 but I own a K75S and I have owned a K100RT and most surely do not and did not have this problem with either of those K bikes.
Anyone have this problem in the past? I am wondering if the throttle bodies are dirty, etc. Seems the dealer should have taken care of this at 15K, but I can't seem to remember the problem then............................
If you have experience or an educated guess I'd like to hear it.
2003 R1150RT, Black Beauty--this is one sexy bike!
1999 R1100GSA, Does everything well, what else can one say?
1992 K75SA, If this engine had been 4-valve instead of 2, it would be the smoothest BMW ever built!
1978 R100S, my first and favorite BMW.
