2001 V92C Back From Dealer Died This Morning - HELP?
Ok - long story short, scored a low mile V92C with < 2K miles. Took it to the dealer and had the 30K service done to ensure everything was in order...New Plugs, New Battery, front forks seals & fluid, front and rear brake fluid, new K&N Air Filter, oil & filter etc.
Bike ran beautifully on it's maiden voyage this morning...for the first 5 miles...then it all went south. Bike got to 50 mph and then all of a sudden started bucking and I had a dead throttle. It stayed running long enough for me to limp into a parking lot where I turned it off and let it sit for a while...restarted it and it ran ok for a mile and then it went back to dead throttle and barely running...until I finally got it home...The symptoms are the same as the when I had to replace a TPS on my Kawasaki Vulcan 1500.
So: My thoughts are that I've got a new battery and 12.8v at idle and 14.4v on the throttle, new plugs etc. so it's not spark; new air filter so not air, exhaust is fine...which leaves the fuel.
The bike sat for who knows how long so I added a full tank of new fuel with seafoam because the tank probably had some rust on the inside that I couldn't see,
I'm thinking either the TPS, clogged fuel filter or fuel pump?
Any other ideas?
