Trubles at start up

Postby grains » Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:17 pm



Once again, I enjoy all the people who are fellow wing owners/lovers and willing to help out the newer guys.
I have not so long ago changed the timing belts,anti freeze and have done an oil change on my bike before I even started it for the season. But it has started to, after it warms up some, stumble and backfire, and will not idle and a lack of power.
If I can get it to move, even with the backfire, it will eventually even out and run just fine . Then it's fine until the next time.
Any ideas would be appreciated

How does it run before it warms up?

It does not take alot to get it started. It always fires right up and runs fine until it is put in gear and then try to pull away.
I have also found that if I stay easy on the throttle for a minute or two, then it seems to be fine

most 1200 wing are very cold blooded and need time to warm up before they idle or run smoothly, give it alittle more time to warm up and see what happens

Thanks for the info. It just seems that didn't happen before but maybe I just missed it
