  12. XL700 cutting out.

    Transalp
    I'm having a problem with my 2009 XL700 cutting out on me. It runs great when ridden BUT the problem is with the idle speed. It won't stay at around the 1200rpm level that it should! So when you start it you have to keep revving it and when you stop in traffic, at junctions, etc you have to rev...

Oil-level is good, spark plug changed last year to an Iridium spark plug from NGK and the batteri is fully charged. I can't really figure out what could cause...
