Mine stalled twice the second day I had it out. Both times at stop lights while it was idling normally at about 1350. It didn't stumble and die, just died instantly like you turned the key. It started right back up both times...and it hasn't happened since (knock wood!).
I rode the 1098S at Pro Italia. I thought it might be the same bike that you rode. I figured I just screwed up the clutch or something. The second time it stalled, I know I had the clutch pulled in about to stop at a light. I was rolling down from 10 mph, 5 mph, then just before I stopped, it cut out completely. That time I knew it wasn't my fault.
Yup, the same bike..ha..haa. I was done with my test ride, put it on neutral, released the clutch and as was backing it into the curb, that was when the engine quit.
JB, did I talk to you that weekend, are you no 21?
I too have had my 1098S for over a week now and it has stalled every day I've rode it. It also died on Mulholland Dr with only 31 miles on it due to a pinched fuel line. They say it came like that from the factory! I had to park it, catch a cab home, and go pick it up!!! Taking it to Willow next week - no red lights there so it shouldn't stall...
If it's slip on related, then most likley it has to do with the kits ECU (fuel mapping). The factory TPS setting may be too "little" and it's causing the bike to go into a fail safe - cut out mode. Just the sort of glitch that could happen here and there but not all the time. It could also be something to do with the timing/spark map, and an ignition glitch.
I have a little more then 400 miles on mine, no stalls. I have been riding twisties, highway and a bit of traffic. Maybe it's the the full termi, my idling rpm is a bit higher because of the termi system. 1450
New owner of a 2008 1098. I’m sure a silly question but can all 1098’s take a pillions weight on the subframe. I think someone has just removed the rear pillion holders and pegs.. I’ve found the fixing plates on the subframe.
will it be ok to refit them?
Hello All - I’ve run into a bit of a problem and wanted to see if I could get some collective help. I took my 1098 on a legendary ride up US191 in Arizona this past weekend. The bike, as always, was amazing and put the adrenaline into overdrive as we got to the destination. We stopped for a...
I had my license plate come off the bracket on my new to me 2007 1098 and rub the rear wheel to the point of a bubble. Luckily I was riding with my brother and he noticed the bubble before it popped. We limped it home and it finally blew on the way home.
My question is... I...
I’m looking to replace the triple tree on a 1098s and hoping to get some beta here on brands that have worked well for others.
Recent front end damage has lead to the search for better handling on the front end.
I’m looking for feedback on the performance gains in the field and track with...
