    When I get out in the morning and it is below 50F Two things happen. When I put the bike in 1st it will start to pull me forward with the clutch fully engaged. Also, I have troubles shifting up to third. It just won't allow me to shift when it is cold. Any Ideas?

    HELP Please. I have an 01 TLR and it takes forever to start cold. Once I do get it fired up it runs like a champ and fires right up warm. If it sits for any period of time its really hard to start. I had the dealership check the valves and sync the throttle bodies as well as replace the plugs...

    I've found that recently when my engine is cold my bike will hesitate upon hard acceleration (not that I do that a lot, but at 47 degrees sometimes I open it up). I've noticed actually that there are bangs coming from the exhaust when it skips, so I assume that fuel is being pumped into the...

    Well I don't understand how but it started to happen out of nowhere... This is what happens when I try to start, ONLY WHEN COMPLETELY COLD: Pull choke in, hit the switch and cranks fast it starts for 2 sec, dies, start again, runs for 5-10 sec and dies, start again, runs but barely (1k rpm)...

    Who knows the differences between the cold running map and the normal (above 80C) map. Aside from the obvious richer mixture,is there a different timing curve or anything else different? I'm trying to tune out the dreaded hiccup at about 3700 revs and I've noticed that it doesn't do it until the...

    Ok I have been reading on how to fix my 97 TLS cold mapping problem. Ok I am no Electronic wizz but how does the ECU know when the bike reaches 82degrees? Does the resistance on the termal switch increase? and if so does anybody know to what? Reason I am asking is I build Steves ATRE which...

    I have an SV650sk2. Recently, since it's been colder in the mornings, I'm having problems keeping it running. I start it on the choke and leave it to warm up for a while, adjusting the choke as need be, which is fine. But after its been running for a couple of minutes the revs start to drop off...

    Okay, i live in California and the weather 90% of the time is great, but during winter some nights in particular the temp drops down to the 50's and i notice in the moring the battery gets sapped of juice, what is the deal? Is it because the battery is so small or what? Curious to see what's...

    I just bought my TLR this summer and it used to start real easy when it was cold. Now you have to hold that starter button longer and longer. It still starts fine when it's warmed up but not so much when it's cold. Is this a common thing for this bike? My first thought was plugs. Any...

    O.k. so a while back I did major tune up stuff, TPS, sync, et. al. Lately, I've noticed that when MaryJane is cold she runs like crap. Once it switches to the warm map she's fine. But there is a serious issue in those first moments as it gets above 176, the warm map kicks in, the thermostat...

    Well if you've been to Anything Goes then you know I need a new rear tire. :banghead My riding style is still somewhat reserved, mostly ride flat and straight roads and may be commuting quite a bit. It rains more often than not here. It is almost never cold. Did I mention rain? I am one...
