I have reviewed the search function, but could not find any information pertaining to this particular question. I have a 2003 LT with 70xxx miles and developed an idle problem over the past few weeks. Last week when I started the bike, instead of going to the study 1000 + or idle the bike dropped down to 500 + or and was very rough. After pulling away the engine stopped at the next stop sign. I restarted it, but it went to the low idle and would not continue to idle unless I held the throttle slightly open. This went on for the next 10 miles and when I arrived home it would not idle.
I thought I had some water in the fuel or may have just had some bad fuel so I put dry gas in it and the next day added 2 gallons of fresh fuel and all was well. The bike would idle at 1000 + or and no other issue.
Last night I started it up and it went back to the 500 +or and stalled every time I stopped for a stop light. I have ruled out a vacuum line, since it does not surge at idle and it did go back to normal for a few days with out any changes to the system. Once I pull off the engine is strong as ever in all the gears. It just will not idle.
All ideas accepted.
