my biffer is dying at idle and low revs
« on: 12 July, 2016, 03:31:12 PM »
Hi gang Ive been having this problem for about a week now and it's quite annoying and a bit dangerous

it is cutting out at low revs and idle, but it is a bit intermittent. usually it will happen once or twice when I'm out on short runs, sometimes a lot more. but coming upto and pulling away from sets of lights and roundabouts and low speed corners seems to be where this problem strikes, but it usually starts up again fairly promptly. after reading a couple of threads I'm thinking it might be the tps sensor, but it doesn't seem to be over fuelling (i did some motorway miles recently and got 170 between stops)

the bike is a mk1 with 27k on the clock, it had a set of plugs (not iridiums) around 9k ago when it had the valve clearances done and a new lithium battery about 2.5k ago

any ideas where I should start?

thanks biffski

As you've found, there are several previous reports of stalling / engine cutting out at low revs, but no apparent common cause, with suggestions including Main Ground connection at chassis/frame, CKP sensor, ac generator system (stator failing), MAF sensor, MAP sensor.

TPS, Stator, or number 3 HT lead. Common enough failures.
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

FI and engine management have a new set of pros & cons - how I long for the 'good old days' when you could just clean the carbs, replace the idle jets & job done  :mfrlol:

Thanks Richard for your Pdf link. Is there a way to troubbleshoot these different elements / sensors ?

My Mk1 is stalling on low rev or on idle only.. for the rest ignition is good and engine rev normally and i didn't notice higher fuel consumption. Bike has little mileage ... about 40.000 km / 25.000 miles

Do you have any clue what it could be ?

I can resist anything but temptation (o.w)

Just one possibility (I recommend a 'search'* of the forum for stall or stalling)....

Good news. Feedback from service reception at Fowlers (Bristol), the Honda technician found a vacuum hose to the MAP with a split. This was allowing air entry which gave an incorrect message that the fuel system was too lean. The compensating extra fuel was making the mixture too rich - hence the lumpy running. They think the age of the vacuum hose was the problem. I remember this was an issue with my Saab 9000, so I may do the same as did with it and replace all the vacuum hoses with silicone. Anyway, very pleased that a specific problem was found and remedied.

The ride to the dealer this morning was crap, with wet, busy roads and the bike switching between power suddenly cutting in or stalling! I pick it up tomorrow so I hope the journey home will be more fun. If not, I will let you know.

Ironically, the TPS arrived today from China! I don't regret it. For £19 I have a spare if I need it. BTW it came without a gasket and I read on this site that no gasket is fitted as standard. Anyone have any suggestions about getting/making a gasket and improving water-proofing?

Thanks all for your input. I hope this is useful to someone in the future
