Save me a trip to the dealer!

Took the tank off my 2004 1150 GSA to replace the crash bars. Finished and replaced the tank, reattached quick connects, electrical plug in, and cannister hoses. Started it up and it runs like crap...kinda like running on one cylinder. Ran great before the tank removal. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Common problem, check the throttle cable where it seats at the throttle body. Prob pulled up and not seated.

the club

Welcome to the club OP. If you own an 1150 GS or GSA you will eventually become a member.

According to his profile, the OP's been a member here since 2009.

How could he not know this?

I would love to see the Photobucket stats on JVB's photo above. That photo alone must get thousands of hits per week--it's posted into so many threads.

Yep. Once you're in the club, it's kind of a race to help the next guy out. Looks like it took six minutes this time. Not bad, but not our best by any stretch.
