TTSE gremlins strike again.
« on: May 10, 2016, 10:09:48 am »
A short while ago I was riding in a 30 mph zone and sticking to the speed limit.  the sun was shining, roads were dry and all was right with the world, at least in Essex, UK. 

As I approached a school 20 mph zone I throttled off expecting the bike to slow.   Nothing happened, in fact , if anything, the bike accelerated.   I blipped the throttle a few times but the bike kept increasing speed.  Pulled in the clutch to disengage the drive and the revs jumped to 6000.   Altering the throttle position did not effect the revs at this stage.    I hit the kill button and drifted towards the pavement (sidewalk) to a stop. 

Sat for a few moments gathering my thoughts and then started the engine again.  The revs gained to their normal, warm engine,  tick over level and when I blipped the throttle the usual expected gain and reduction occurred.    killed the engine again and went through the restart process for a second time. All seemed normal. 

Into first gear and continued my journey home.   I have ridden a few times since and all is ok.    Now, I have read here about cold temperatures effecting the electronics but my ride was warm.  So what is happening?   :187:

Hi Phil,

One of the first things to check when anything "strange" like this happens,
is to see if there are any new DTC's ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes ) that have beeen stored.

The sooner this is checked the better, as some of the Codes are deleted from Memory
after a certain number of no fault start ups, so you can lose information
for any fauts that only occur intermittently  :138:

See here for how to display any such Codes on your Instrument Panel :
Servicing Data, Reference Info & DTC ( Fault ) Codes

At the end of the most recent Post there's a downloadable "Word" document
explaining what the various codes mean, and how long they are stored for.

Has your Trophy been Serviced or worked on recently ?

It is possible that the Throttle bodies have not been / are not fitted correctly,
and the butterfly valves could have snagged.

There's another Thread all about that here :
P2111, P2119 may be caused by throttle bodies not seated

Keep us posted  :028:

Ha,  :745:

Not quite the subject matter I would have expected on a motorcycle forum: Ironing and housework?   :138:  But it sounds like we may have similar lives.  I retired back in 1999 but my wife, bless her, still works so I get to enjoy a bit of ironing and hoovering myself.  More recently this now includes nappy changing since our grandchild was born.   Much rather change oil.

You can only watch so much Discovery channel programs.  I know everything there is to know about Hitler and sharks.

Fingers crossed that it does turn out to be something simple like a snagged component but you would think that it would keep doing it until it is freed??

I got to admit, I'm not happy about this fly by wire throttle and possible hacking into/interference that could occur from  an outside source. I know that this is modern technology for you but you would have thought that the government wouldn't have allowed such vehicles on the road period???

That should clear away any fluff in the navel !  :745:

Not that similar - I get do ALL my Housework since Mrs.C decided to go her own way.

Still, it was nice of her to wait until I retired,
so she could still share half of my Pension Lump Sum  :159:

But we digress - let us know when you have checked for error codes etc.

Cheers  :821:
