2012 C5 Classic idle throttle hunts
« on: January 02, 2013, 09:17:26 AM »
Does anybody had this happen before or know what causes it?
My 2012 C5 classic idle RPM hunts (goes up and down) and eventually after 1 or 2 minutes shuts off. I can start it again and the problem is gone for a while, but even after riding a hour or so if I stop at a redlight it sometimes tries to stall out again. Took it to the dealer and they could not find anything, so theu just increased the idle RPM.

You'd get better results posting in the forum for the new bikes with a C5 question.
I'd suspect you need a TPS adjustment.

This forum is for the classic bikes.

Have you changed your spark plug yet? An NGK BPR6ES will help a lot with that problem.
