uneven idle
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:01:08 PM »
Hi Guys ,bit of advise please for a new Z1000SX owner .
Purchased a 2016 model last week with only 100miles on the clock so still running in ( ex demo )
I have noticed that from cold it start instantly and idles around 2000 rpm which is fine . When warm if i turn off for a few min ( filling up with fuel etc ) then restart idle is around 1200 and smooth . If i turn of and leave for an hour ( its not hot but not fully cooled down ) the engine crank is longer and the idle tone sounds lumpy and uneven . I have read several comments similar to this so i may be worrying over nothing but being new to this model just wanted to make sure . Any advise please

Kurt all sounds ok to me too my 17 is similar. You may also notice that if you pull the clutch in at 4th 5th & 6th gear and let the engine drop to idle, the idle will be higher than it is in 1st & 2nd. (may also do this in 3rd) this is normal too.
