Default Idle

Is it normal for idle on the 106 to "bounce" a bit? Like it should idle 1000 ish but it seems to bounce between 1000 to 1050 not steady smooth continuous idle.

I assume this is the digital tach --
It only registers in increments of 50. Because it is rounding to the nearest 50 it will "jump" by 50's. There are no numbers in between. When it is bouncing back and forth think 1025 RPM.
SkInM4N and smrpilot like this.

Eh well it's on my CCT but I was just curious if it's normal for RPM to vary on the 106. It's not a lot but it's not a steady needle holding a specific RPM either.

Hmm. Maybe issue with plugs then. It's on my list with brake fluid. Only two things I didn't mess with last year when I bought the bike.

Possibly I'm making it seem worse than it really is. A little variation in RPM. Even my pickup does that but it idles more like a diesel for 7 years.

Just not sure what is normal on the 106 engine. My Honda might do something similar but no tach on that for me to observe.

I'll need to pull tank for air filter so I'll check everything I can see then. If we get enough dry weather for me to use some of this winter gas first.

Why are you letting your pickup idle for 7 years?

when my vision had idle fluctuation it was cause battery was on its way out.

Well it's been doing it since I bought it used last May so I assumed was normal...

So you're all saying the tach should hold a solid steady line on the RPM with no fluttering?

Battery is a good possibility I'm not sure age but it doesn't take long to recover on the tender after a ride so I think that's probably good.

Spark plugs I'll pull here soon maybe just need a good cleaning I've not checked them yet.

Not even sure where to look for a vacuum leak I've never had the tank off.

I do still have my "winter" gas because for some reason mother nature wants to dump rain everyday I wanna ride. Same symptoms last year in the middle of summer though.
