Idles a little rough at low rpm

Post by BOSNBOB » Sun Jun 03, 2012 8:46 pm

I hope you all can give a man a little help, i'am stumped. I have a 86 aspencade SEI and When I first start the bike after its been sitting a couple hours it sounds and runs fine. After it it warms up 10 to 15 minutes it ideling erratically but if give it a little throttle it smooths out. Anything above 1400 rpm's and it seems to be fine. Does anyone have some ideas or things I can try. I have put seafoam in the tank. I changed the plugs, it has a new air filter.

I don't know if it applies to SEi's (not having any experience with them) but I know on the 1100's this is commonly a symptom of failing pulse generators.
