Howdy-- I'm currently in Santiago, Chile about to throw my leg over the saddle for a long day to Pucon (top of the Lakes District). I rode through SW Bolivia (Laguna's Route), and when I got out of the Lagunas route I noticed that my bike was idling really high--or the high idling may have been after I put in 97 octane in Chile--not sure. In any event, my idle is now quite high (1,700 to 2,000 RPM), and it is especially bad when I come off the Autopista ("freeway") and my engine is hot. Usually you can just pop the throttle to get the RPM to drop back down to the normal sub 1,500 RPM range, but that is not working all of the time. I did switch from the 97 octane gas to the 93 octane gas, but that doesn't seem to help. So what do we think? Is this a TPS thing? Throttle body thing? Throttle cable thing? Fuel filter? Fuel pump? Spark plugs? I have my ohm meter and could check out the TPS, but I am doubting it would be the throttle bodies, as I am not getting any surging. It might be the fuel filter/pump, as I did just get out of Bolivia and Peru--but the fuel pump and filter were both new when I left the states 3 months ago. Beyond the high RPM idle, the bike is running amazing! I crossed 90,000 miles on the odometer outside of Lake Titicaca in Peru before we crossed the border into Bolivia. She's an old gal, but she's solid--and I can smell Ushuaia! I'm not like the other dudes down here with tons of time (I have a wife for christ's sake), so I need to keep moving. So unless this is an indication of a much more perilous issue, I'm predisposed to keep moving south, which would be outside the Santiago safe zone (moto shops everywhere, BMW, etc). Therefore, I would appreciate a quick response in case I need to stay in Santiago for the day sorting this out. BTW, Chile is amazing. Clearly I'm able to appreciate it because I've now been through quite a few of these Latin American gems...but Chile is amazing. Okay, I'm going to go and snag a cup of coffee and breakfast. Thanks guys (and gals)!
