Hi folks dont know if anyone can shed some light on this but was out on a run today and had done about 150 miles when i noticed that when the bike is stationary and in netural the engine fluctuates between 1200 and 1500 revs (normally about 800). Could the ecm have got its knickers in a twist - hoping that an ecm rest might cure it. The only other thing that i hac done is fill up at the local superstore - always used that garage as it is the cheapest for miles around

Any thoughts would be greatly appriceated.

You might check to see if the chokes are coming off completely, a sticking cable can cause this kind of problem.

I had this problem the same October last. The dealer disconnected the battery and reconnected it and reset the ECM and it ran fine since that time.

I know of another owner for who the rest ECM did not work. The problem was a faulty temperature sender/sensor which made the ECM stay in cold start mode and heiher rpm.

Do the ECM reset first to see if that fixes your problem.

Hi guys many thanks for your imput - have checked cables right through and they are not sticking anywhere have reset the ECM (twice) and still no luck - suspect this is a dealer job as i have about reached my technical limits now.

Many thanks

Another possible cause for erratic and high idling is the CO sensors on the exhausts. This happend to mine and the sensor was replaced under warranty. Very common apparently on the 01 and 02 models and Honda supply better sensors now.

well after having sat in the dealers for 3 days they fired the bike up run a diagnostics check on it and found seven errors in the ecu (codes 10,12,13,14,15,16,17), dont know what they are but they cleared the log and the bike has been fine ever since - going to give the bike a decent run tomorrow and will see if the problem shows up again.

Many thanks for your help guys

Nice one Phil. At least two of those error codes are related to CO sensors, so they obviously replaced them.

No m8 they didnt replace anything - all they did was clear the error codes. All i did before i took it in the shop was to take the tulsa belly pan off and i cant for the life of me see what that did LOL. Been out on it today and done about 100 miles and it is fine - fingers crossed I had visions of the ecu being knackered

manythanks again

Hey Phil, I had a similar situation in 2003 with my 01 1800. The dealer replaced the CO sensors without any hassle, apparently there was a Honda service bulletin about it. They replaced my kill switch as well as there was a SB on that too that I didn't know about.
