I have a problem that is stumping me on the 1150. It's an 02 with 130k on it. It seems like the problems should be 2 independent issues, but they also seem like they could be tied together. Two Problems: -The bike has a faint fuel smell when it's running, but not when it's parked (for a day or more). The smell comes after starting the bike and when stopped at light (or whatever) , I get a whiff of the smell of fuel. - The throttle and in twisting of the throttle is normal when the bike is off, and when it first starts. Once I get up to speed - about 70 or so- the throttle feels like the throttle lock is on. Very stiff. It stays this way, even when I stop with the bike running. If I turn the bike off for 10 minutes or so, the throttle is normal while the bike is off and is normal until I get up to operating speed again. Here's what I have tried- Throttle- lubed the cables and tube and looked for binding cables and such. No results. Like I said- I would think the two issues would be separate, but if I had a vacuum issue, that would force the fuel smell and if we had vacuum carbs the vent would be clogged causing them not to run properly. Has anyone run into this before?
