rough running

Post by tattoo » Wed May 15, 2013 11:11 pm

After having his vtr into the dealer with the dreaded cct failure my mate says since he got it back it won't rev past 7k and cuts out too and is running rough, apparently the machanic left the tps unconnected so he reconnected it but it's running rough, I've told him to recheck the timing and check the fuel tap for the stopping at 7k problem and to check for any splits in the vacuum pipes, check the carbs are seated properly and balance the carbs, clean the airfilter and to turn the idle up to 1200-1400rpm....have I forgotten anything????

Sounds like timing is 180' out .

Because of the rough running I would double check the vacuum pipe is connected on the right place on the petcock first just to rule it out. But because it's actually cutting out at 7 though this leads me to think this is another timing issue with it being 180 degrees out as Lloydie said.

You will find the solution in the following post:

You would have hoped that a dealer would know this, wouldn't you!

Good to hear your mate is getting somewhere at last, fingers crossed it comes back right this time :)
