'00 900SS Overheating and Coughing/Cutting Out
I'm back again...
So I took the bike to Ferracci last time, and since it was only 5 days before my move to Texas, asked them to just get it running (which they did). Good call on whoever said the injectors were clogged, btw!
Now I'm having a bit of a different problem though - the bike heats up really quickly, to about 90+ percent to red line and I've had a lot of excessive coughing/popping up through about 3500 rpms (especially when the bike is hot). To my untrained mind, this seems like it could be anything from more problems with the injectors to resetting the fly wheel to bad valves, but I think as we've established, I'm not especially good with these things.
I have a little more time to work on her now and would really prefer to keep her out of the shop if possible - anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
