So I just changed belts, checked valves on my 796. She will start up just fine, but will die if left to idle on it's own. If I keep the throttle cracked she will run and rev up like normal.

I quintuple checked the clearances to make sure I wasn't too tight on the openers. I checked the closers but did not adjust those as they were close to spec on the loose side.

The fuel in the tank is a few months old.

I did notice what looked like water coming from the stock exhaust skip joint but I am assuming that is because of the Cat converter.


I've had an issue similar to this years ago and it ended up being a small vacuum line had cracked. Back then the bike was hard to start and stay idling. I checked the vacuum lines and those look good.


Any help would be appreciated. Just paranoid at this point

I would get that old fuel out and some fresh stuff in to start but it sounds like you need a TPS (throttle position sensor) reset

I think you are right. So I went out this morning and tried it again. Ice cold she fires right up with a slight high idle. It ran for about a minute or more with a couple of idle fluctuations. It the settled into normal idle and from there is will slowly die out. I took the gas cap off to eliminate maybe the vent line being plugged/ pinched and it still died off. Once it is a little warm it will fire up then die off quick

Well dropped it off today. I have no way to reset the TPS on my own. So we'll see.

Also. Anyone know why this post only shows on Tapatalk and not on the site when viewed on a computer?

Well for those that are interested the dealer called today. Said I had a vacuum leak at the airbox and my plugs were fouled. ( Plugs were on my list to change after I did belts and valve check anyway). They also are doing a settings reset, basically a TPS reset like what HyperJB mentioned. He said everything else looked good.

I'm betting the leak was on the large 3/4"-ish hose towards the rear of the airbox. The hose is just pressed on to a barbed nipple with no clamp. I didn't think to check that hose when I had the problems. I checked the smaller lines that run from the inlets to the pressure sensor and just assumed the large line was sealing. With the bike being almost 9 years old that hose probably isn't as flexible as it use to be so the seal was not being made.


I will confirm where the leak was when I pick her up, but I'm outta town for a while so I will update later.
