I have just purchased a 2003 749s with termis and chip. The problem I have is that the motor has cut out when down shifting on 2 occassions. The only way to get her started again is by turning her on then off. It sounds like fuel problem because the bike has hiccupped(it sounds exactly like a hiccup)
on more than one occassion. My Fatboy used to do the same but never cut out.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
Oh, by the way the bike has only 7000ks on the clock and has been serviced at 5000ks as well. The owner was very meticulous.

thanks

need to reset/adjust the TPS. My 749 dark with termi/chip does the same thing.

Dealership still can't fix it right...

Messed up thing is that everytime they mess with it the performance of the bike either gets a lot better or a lot worse. that tps sensor also basically adjusts the AFR for the whole curve...

Here is a quick hack version of what to do. I did this off the top of my head so there may be small gaps I am planning on doing a tutorial with pictures and so on and posting it on our site, but thats a month off or so because I am waiting for our new web site to be done.
Injection set up:
remove tank and side panels

remove access plugs on the LH side of the airbox (there are two)

Loosen the screws holding the airbox lid on so you can pry open the back of the airbox about 1/2"

Once the airbox is pried open you will be able to see the throttle linkage on the rear throttle body.

There is a 4mm allen set screw for idle speed that points upward toward the LH lower corner on the top of the airbox. Drill a hole so you can adjust this.

Set the air bypass screws all the way in.

Connect vacume balancing guage to the ports on the intakes.

Start motor (it won't want to idle)

Balance TB's with the balance linkage inside the big access port in the airbox.

Set the bypass screws at 3/4 of a turn out.

The bike should be idling at about 1200rpm's

Shut the motor off

Connect the Mathesis to read TPS setting

Back off the idle setting untill there is a gap between the set screw and the tab that it effects (zero idle preload)

What does the TPS read? If it reads zero you will need to wind in the set screw till it treads 2.8+ deg and then re-set the TPS. Now wind the idle back out again.

So now you have a TPS reading of .5+ or so (as long as it's above zero). And the set screw is not touching the linkage.

Take whatever the TPS reading is and add 2.3deg. So if it read .5 and you add 2.3 you come up with 2.8. Wind the set screw in till it reads 2.8deg. Then re-set the TPS. It will ow be assigned a value of 2.3 and you actualy have 2.3 deg on the trottle blades.

Set the trimmer at +20 (this is a starting point for CO's)

Start bike

Play with the air screws till the idle is 1200RPM (the screws should never be more than 1 1/4 turns out).

Recheck balance, TPS setting, CO's

I think this covers it, does it make sense?

Re: 749s cuts out! (section8superbike)

Thanks for that guys. The Duke does idle around the 1200rpm mark consistantly but hiccups as said before. One more question though, how do you make the Duke do a wheel stand without dropping the clutch. I heard that you change the first gear cog on the first service and it helps with city riding(start/stop).

Thanks

Re: 749s cuts out! (Kel)

I havent yet had to take it to a dealer. I picked the bike up 2 days before Christmas. Nice Chrissie present.
