I have A 2005 California EV ( Hydraulic valves)
The other day I decided to oil the control cables.
The fast idle cable I disconnected from the lever end.
The throttle cables I disconnected from the capstan on the throttle assembly and the twist
All Oiled and replaced The bike started as usual.
Went for a 70mil run next day all running fine but the idle
would not fall below 1400 to 1500 RPM.
At a friend’s I slackened off the opening cable but it made
no difference so left till I got home.
At home took off the throttle body covers and had a good look
round all items were on their stops I disconnected all the cables but it made
no difference ( There was plenty of free play any way)
Now read the manual as I hadn’t much idea of what did what.
Found the idle speed control screws on my throttle body’s they
run up from underneath.
with engine running I screwed the right in and then the
left, then engine gave a slight cough
Good I thought I just back them off 1-1/4 turns and see if I
can adjust the idle speed .
But now the bike won’t start. It cranks fine but doesn’t fire or even attempt
I left it a day or two but no difference, I disconnected the
ground on the battery for a time, reconnected
but made no difference. I have checked
all local connections all seem sound on switching on the ignition the pumps
runs up and then stops.
I invested in one of those programs you put in a laptop to
try and read any fault codes, but all that’s done is mess up the lap top.
I am in Devon so no Guzzi dealer nearby and as the bikes not
running so will be difficult in getting
So Anyone have any ideas as to what to look for?
I have also posted in General a request for recommendations for
a diagnostic tool or program suitable for looking for faults and keeping the
bike in tune.
So any advice will be very appreciated.
