Not ready yet

The fall colors are just getting started in my area of Michigan. It's truly my favorite time of year for riding. Although I am thinking about selling my SCR and buying (20) iPhones.

Look at this - all the original gangstas back together!!

Really starting to cool down over here now though - I presume it is in the North over there, too?

Went for a ride to see my Dads new Harley yesterday - managed to blag a go, too. Bit of a beast - 103 ci, with Stage 1.....lovely. Maybe I’ll inherit when he gives up biking (it’s a 74th Birthday present to himself, bless him.......)

Not so much fun on the way home - was literally about 4 miles from home (in the fast lane on the Motorway/Highway!), when the SCR starting surging!! “Not again” I thought......having experienced this a few times before, and even running dry once.

Made for the closest exit, and managed to get off the Motorway, but she finally ran out about 500 yards from the petrol station.....second time I’ve had to push this thing!!

Oh well - no harm, no foul. I think I had about 125 miles on the trip (I’ve long since stopped recording how much I get out of each tank), but interestingly - the Koso didn’t indicate I was running low, and trip to the ‘countdown’ counter, so no idea what’s happening there.....something to investigate, I guess, but I’ve a feeling it’s not the first time it hasn’t registered low fuel.

“Hang in there”.

They're all coming out of the woodwork now! Looking like we might revive this thread after all. Good to hear from you as well, Ben! I have a question for anyone who has Ivan's reflash. Once in a while, my bike goes into a high idle fit. I first noticed it after riding a while, shutting it off to refuel, then on start up, it goes into the high idle fit for the next few miles. It goes away after awhile. It also happened a couple of times on cold start up and not letting the normal high idle settle down before taking off. I am going to ask Ivan.... What gives??!!

Yeah, I’ve noticed that on occasion too, but it’s not been anything I’ve ever been too concerned about. When we’re talking “high idle”, it’s not like the engine is racing or anything - maybe a couple of 100 rpm higher than normal.....as you say, it seems to settle down pretty quickly too.

I’m sure I’ve read about it elsewhere too, so don’t think its a new phenomenon.

Sorry - no answers, but at least you’re not alone!!

The occasional high revving shouldn't be anything of concern, but if you HAVE TO check something it might be worthwhile to check the cleanliness of your air filter. I remember my little Ruckus, which had a carburetor, ran at higher RPM's when the air was cold, dry, and easy to get through the filter, and ran lower on very damp days when the Chicago air was as thick as pea soup. A dirty air filter could throw off how the ECU responds to gas/air mixtures.

Most engines will rev high when they're cold or if the air is really dry, anyway. I wouldn't be too concerned. Plus, from what SCRBen posted, high revving after a flash is apparently intentional?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Get some leather for your SCR. Free shipping!
Set of 2 Pony Express Bags
Or get shorty on the left or right
Need under-seat storage? I've got you covered
How about a forkbag?
Know someone with a Yamaha Bolt? Spread the word about my new bag!

Try again for a color cruise

I'm going to ride again tomorrow and see if the fall colors are starting to peak yet. Tomorrow's high is supposed to hit 52F and sunny at 2 PM. I like it like that.
