Like the title says I am brand new to the BMW realm, in addition to the motorcycle realm as well.
This is my first bike ever and I am excited to start hitting the road.
I am consulting the forums because they have never failed me in the past, that and I enjoy doing all my own work to whatever extent I am capable.
My questions are as follows:
Just buying this bike I have noticed a few things that I would like to get some info about.
The start up: takes a few times sometimes more, have to constantly work the choke to keep it going dies occasionally.
Idle: idles at around 800 once warmed up, and dies if I don't keep working the throttle sometimes.
The throttle: if I get on it real quick it will bog down immediately until I let off, if I rev up a bit slower it works just fine.
Changed the fuel filter, spark plugs and still the same thing. Was told the valves were adjusted prior to me buying it.
I have yet to pick up a tb sync, or even check the ecu for codes. Does it just sound like it needs a tune up?
What are some things that I need to look for on this bike?
Should I change out all the fluids prior to riding it? What would you all recommend?
