ncsonderman Posted April 1, 2007 Share Posted April 1, 2007 On mile 200 of my Sunday ride, I lost power and had to coast to a (luckily) driveway and stop. Running about 6K RPM in 4th gear, all of a sudden "BBBBBRRRRRrrrrrrrrr" I dropped into third and tried to find power but none to be had. I was in a long consistent radius lefthander and needed to drop into neutral to coast to a stop. I still read 2 bars on the fuel gauge... Prior symptoms: A couple of times earlier in the day, I'd experience a hiccup that I attributed to being the rev limiter. Upon further reflection though... I did notice what seemed to be surging a couple of times today as well as during my commuting around town the last week. (My bike normally doesn't surge noticeably) History: It's a 97 R1100 RT with 16,800 that I picked up last August with 10K on the clock. I just got back from a trip to FL with no problems. I dialed Chris Kinney for some tech support and we changed out fuse #6 with no result. Next swapped out the relays also with no result. The Rider Information Display works fine when the ignition is turned to the on position as does the ABS sensor. Missing is the whir of the fuel pump initialization. I was able to rely on a good friend, his infant daughter and his father to drive about 65 miles to Lawsonville, NC to pick me up. A big dinner through down is definately coming their way Anyone had this happen before (of course it has, I just had to ask ) Where do I go from after I strip the tupperware? Thanks, Joe Link to comment
