Yep, checked them already.
I know this is an old thread, but were you ever able to find a solution to the issue? I'm having a similar experience with my '11 990 Adv. The idle would increase to around 3k-4k rpm, usually during long downhill sections. Instead of slowing when I let off the throttle it keeps building speed and rpm as I'm riding downhill. When the road levels out, I'm cruising at 45 mph (3k rpm) with no throttle input. It happened a few times on a ride last year, then went away until it happened again last weekend.
Hi there, sorry for the delay in replying, I was out riding the big girl in Austria
The problem turned out to be a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS) I replaced both an it sorted itself out fine. Let me know how you get on mate
All the best - Martyn
Thanks Martyn! I'll start with the TPS.
Ihad a problem on my -07 with intermittent high idle, up to 3-4 k rpm.
I turned out that some shade tree mech had "adjusted" the stepper motor causing to get "stuck" once i a while causing my high idle.
A bit expensive as the mothership does no sel the stepper motors as a spare part.
Triumph does and it will fitbut, alas I did not know that then and had to fork out a king's ransom to change out the whole injection thingy.
I recently replaced the idle stepper motor and did the 15 min reset and went for a day ride. The bike ran well in the morning and I thought the bike was cured but in the afternoon it was back to the stuck idle. Would using TuneECU diagnose the problem? I have the cable and spent two hours last weekend trying to get it setup but I get an error when trying to download the drivers for it (using an old desktop running XP). Would using TuneECU identify the problem or do I just need to replace the two throttle position sensors? I'm really hoping the solution is something other than replacing the whole assembly!
I'd first have a check on the TPS values over several ocasions just to check for a pattern
Here is a link to the tuneecu thread where I recorded data to replace the stepper motor and adjust the tps.
Edit: I tried the link. You will have to scroll up just a little to find the info.
