ascaife01 Posted July 30, 2022 Share #1 Posted July 30, 2022 My 2007 RSV has been having starting issues. When starting, I choke the bike and it usually starts right up. However, within a minute or two it seems to act as if it is not getting fuel and slowly dies. (Yes, I have fuel in the tank). It becomes increasingly difficulty to start to the point where it is just limping before it completely dies. The other night when this happened, I twisted the knob (I believe it controls the idle) and I was able to get it to run. Then rode the bike about two hours. I am not sure the idle knob really has anything to do with it starting. Now when I try to start it is giving me the same symptoms, starts on choke but is struggling to run and then eventually dies. When attempting to give it throttle, it immediately dies. Any suggestions? Also, when changing the left rear spark plug I noticed a metallic tube in the spark plug chamber. Should this have a hose on it? What is that for? Is it in every spark plug chamber? Al Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
