R1200gsa intermittent stall when idling
« on: October 17, 2022, 05:40:13 PM »
I have a 2008 R1200gsa with 50,000 miles. Started to feel strange when pulling away from a stop. I was on holiday and over the next 4,000 miles the problem got slightly worse.  Arriving home i did the slightly overdue service but there were no fault codes registered. Presumed that it was a coil and swapped from my other bike of the same year. no different so swapped injectors. Still no different.
Any ideas please?

check the spark plug and wire harness if giving correct voltage


also check throttle body may need to be cleaned and last check sensors if they are work properly

Make sure the throttle bodies are balanced at idle, whilst still having about a mm play in the cables.  Often worn throttle bodies ( and in particular worn butterflies) cause that problem.

This clip is for the R1100RT, but exactly the same applies to the 1200 range.
