Keep using heavy doses of Sea Foam for the next 4 or 5 tank fulls of gas. Just add a few ounces to each fill up.


Think long and hard before spending $$$ on a CDI. Many CDI's have been replaced that turned out not to be the problem.

I did most of the above to mine. I got it running but it skipped a lot at any type of higher speed. Then on maybe the second treated tank of fuel it went thru a very bad short spell of missing, a large backfire and it has run perfect ever since.

Good Luck.
Howdy EZman671,

What you described is what I did and plan to keep on doing. The thing that has me mystified is if I take the spark plug out, give the engine a SHORT shot of starting fluid, it will fire up and run for a few revolutions. Repeat this procedure a few times and the darn thing will then start with out the starting fluid and when warmed up will run good and easily start either by kick or use of the electric starter. What ever it is I am sure its something so darn simple I am going to feel like crawling under a rock when I figure it out or someone suggests the fix to me.

2) shim the needle up 0.05".

3) replace the main jet with a #132.5.

However, I believe the #130 main jet was a better choice for me. I had it in before switching to the #132.5, and I'm thinking of going back. I'm running about 0.03" of shim.

Here's what I think: If the needle is shimmed, the carb has been modified. But, the jet says it's a #128... anyone rejetting a TW will put in a bigger jet, OR... drill it out. Can you tell if this has been done?
i am original owner, but have several bikes. so.. soometimes it's hard to remember what i changed on each of em. i did change jetting at some point, but may have changed back to stock... just can't remember. but i did shim the needle, so i removed that and set the mixture screw at 1.5 turns out. the jets are 128 pilot and 31 main.. not 131. it is rich and fuel mileage yesterday was 65 mpg... which is low for that bike.

air filter is clean. one thing i didn't think about till last night.. the spark plug is original one... maybe it is just getting weak spark. i am gonna install a new spark plug and see what that does, if it doesn't fix it i will swap the 128 pilot for a 126. if neither of them changes fixes it... guess i will check valves.

My 2005 does the exact same thing. I have tried all different shims and jets and idle air mixtures (currently 1 3/4 turns out, 0.010" shim, 130 main).

So I suggest you remove the carb completely and look for dirt. Since I removed the slide and deceleration bypass bits, cleaned thoroughly, the hesitation has almost gone away.

I bet the issue would go away completely if I did a better cleaning (with a wire to poke all the fuel passages).

My '09 does a similar thing when it gets cooler, like below 50. In fact it almost won't start below that, never has. I've just parked it and ridden my F800 when it got cooler but I would like to know what I need to do to fix it. I've rejetted the carb and it starts like a champ when it is warmer but acts like it is flooding out when it is cooler

Howdy All,

I think I fixed my old T-dub, its starting very well now, I'll let it sit over night and try it again in the morning, "IF" it starts then I'll declare victory, if not I'll whine and work on it some more. Stay tuned for what I think the problem was.

The contrast is amazing!

Please list brand, parts # & who sells them. I'd like to get a set for my TW & another set for my Versys.

Thanks

Over the weekend Ronnydog and I completed an Iron Butt Saddlesore 1000, each of us on TW's.

I think this is a first for these particular bikes and among what appears to be only a handful of small displacement singles to have done a registered ride.

Very cool!
What was your average and top speed? What about fuel mileage?
