Stumbling '15 Wing

Postby dmarble » Wed Oct 05, 2016 8:52 am



Just took my 2015 1800 in for the brake recall. While it was there, I asked the dealer to look into a cold running "stumble" this bike has had since new. Once it warms up, all is well. He said, and I quote, "oh, they all do that". To which my reply was, no way! This thing is fuel injected, it should run without a hesitation or stumble all the time! So, I ask the question since I'm sure this has been covered on the 1800s before, is a cold running stumble/hesitation normal on these bikes? If not, what has been the fix? Is this dealer blowing me off? Thanks!

Got the same problem with my 2012... Got the same answer from my dealer !
It's really annoying when trying low speed manoeuvres so I compensate by using 2nd gear a lot.

If he says that is NORMAL, which we all know it is not, ask him to let you ride one of the Wings on the floor and see if that does it also
Most dealers don't know a lot about the Wing. The old 1500's 88 & 89 had that stumble but they had carbs, Try and find another dealer. I know some times that is not possible because of where you live.

Thanks, I'm doing exactly that. I took a chance taking it to this particular dealer, and I guess that was a bad choice.
