rough running 1150gs

Postby k12pfc » Mon Jun 19, 2017 2:57 pm

My mate just bought a 1999 r1150gs as a precaution we changed the engine oil which due to engine bars we had to move the tank, after putting it all back together it wont run smooth, its like its being starved of fuel, it runs but hesitates and accelerates, intermittently, I've checked the pipes under the tank and they are not trapped or kinked, any ideas?

Check the right hand throttle cable hasn't come unseated.
