    Hey guys looking to connect with someone with a GS911 in the Calgary area. Will buy you a case of beer, lunch whatever.
    I have a 2010 f800gs that runs like absolute trash. I’ve only got 4 rides on the bike and can’t figure out my issue. Really regretting selling my KLR.
    Anyways I’ve done the following already:
    -new fuel pump and filter
    -new valve cover gasket and valve clearance check-all good.
    -checked all hoses, connections and spark plugs-good.
    -cleaned ISV
    -removed check valve
    -cleaned air box and filter.
    I’m at my wits end. I don’t want to pay a dealer, I’ve never not repaired my own bike. Never had something this complex. Bike will not hold a proper idle. Very rough. Stalls constantly. Not smooth through rev range. Unrideable. Thanks!

    Maybe the throttle Position Sensor? On a bike that age it's possible. Bike won't run properly if it bad or out of adjustment.

    I do not have a BMW but KTM's had same issues if TPS went bad.

    Little black plastic thing on the throttle bodies usually with a dab of paint on the attachment screw and a small wire harness connected.

    At this point I can’t think of what it possibly could be. Fuel injectors maybe? The TPS is a good suggestion. I’d hope that would throw a code but I’ve got no check engine light

    I know it's seems obvious but have you changed the fuel out and run a high dose of Seafoam or the like through?

    That would be great. I’d be happy to pay you for your time. I live over in Beddington. Unfortunately the bike is in no condition to make it over to you, nor do I own a truck.
