Current ride: BUELL XB 9 chimera
Location: Portugal
Left the garage ate o 700 in the morning to go to work. About 500 meters the bike “poped” and shot off, I restart it and immediately the idle went to 1500 rpm, keeped on going about 200 meters I stop the machine shot her off again, restarted, the same 1500 rpm what the hell??? About 1 km further I decided to reduce the idle to 1100 rpm.
What happen when she “poped”??? that made the idle screw, screw it self??? Bizarre… :|
