  1. Yep! All's well.

    Yep! All's well.
  2. Done!

    The offending notch...the notch that allowed me to get really good at removing right side RT plastic...the notch that almost made me give up on this project and go whining to to the dealer for help....

    LOL, not something I really wanted to perfect in this lifetime. I'll have the answer this evening.

    HUH? THIS IS GOOD INFO! I spent too much time last night messing with the adjusters at the grip. I can make it work...kinda. I'll take the right side plastic off AGAIN tonight and look for the...

    This is it!! I did the valve adjust again with the bike cold ( well 100 in the garage was the best I could do). Started it up and the rpm still hung around 2500. Crap! I sat on the garage floor and...

    I guess I need to clarify my RPM hanging description. Before I did the 12,000 mile service I could hold the throttle at 3000, let go and it would return to idle. OK, fine, happy, good.

    Now, if...

    Did they tell you what the problem ended up being? This is similar to what mine is doing after the same service.
  9. Update

    I checked all the cabled and vacuum lines last night...all's well. There's enough slack in the cables that I can turn the bars from lock to lock without the RPM changing. At this point, I'm blaming...
  10. Update

    I give up for the day. I thought my lack of throttle freeplay might be the issue, so I un-adjusted it so I have a bit more freeplay. Throttle still hangs. I'll re-do the valves after it's been...

    Can do. All was well before the service, so I hope I didn't mess up any cabling. I have the snorkel off right now so I'll have a look at the cables.
  12. valve adjust now RPM hangs on decel 2009 R1200T

    I just finished the 12,000 mile service. The exhaust valves were a bit tight after getting them perfect when I did the 6000 mile service. I took lots of time adjusting them...checked, checked and...

    No test rides for us that day. I have this really bad habit of having to buy bikes that I demo. Since we just bought the RT, I figured it was better that we just look this time around.

    Sticky: Somewhere on Mattole Road this past weekend

    The road was a bit, shall we say, rugged for our tastes, so we turned around when we got to the coast.

    Vallecito is actually Vallecito Lake (more a reservior than a lake). It's VERY nice back in there and the RV park we stayed at is one of the best we've seen. Here's the bike by the lake:

    We had a great time and really did NOT want to come home. The roads were perfect and we only had a bit of rain coming home from Silverton on Friday.

    Here's the bike somewhere between Durango and...

    Uh oh...now you guys have me worried. I'm sitting at 1100 feet right now and will be taking the bike to Colorado this weekend where it will see 10,000+ elevations. Do I need to worry about venting...
