Goes from normal idle- to slow idle- to engine stop
Welll...I musta upset something. I installed a Garmin 665. Took the top Tupperware off and set aside the Stingray--but did not disconnect it. Routed the new wiring down the left hand side, re-installed all the Tippwrware.
Now here's the problem.
Taking the k1200 out for its first ride w/the new GPS, the bike now all of a sudden does this:
Runs fine at about 1100 rpm on cold start, then as it starts to warm up and the idle rpmscome come down. To about 800prm. THEN--As the engine continues to warm up, idle drops below 600 rps and starts running rough .
I can goose the throttle-- and the engine will respond. Take the bike on the road, and when I back all the way down on the throttle-- the engine will quit-- quickly-- just as if someone shut down the engine. I can restart it-- it will start right up.. And as long as I am giving it some gas, it's okay. Let it go to idle, it stops.
Did I Pinch a gas line perhaps under the faring or the Singray.... Or......please weigh in Gurus. I was feeling very righteousl installing the new GPS and going thru my right of passage on first Tupperware encounter.
Feeling kinda puney right now.
I would like to have some guidance beforeI go another round of Toperware removal.
