Engine cut out

Postby ogr1 » 20 Jul 2020 17:24

Hi ..
I have posted this on the 'Granpasso eu' site, but no response as yet.
I know it is not a new subject, but...
Sunday.
I was out for a ride and the bike shut down, mid corner and a slight uphill? No warning.
Engine just stopped, all dash lights on, pulled clutch in and coasted until bike was upright again,
pressed starter and it fired back into life?
Very disconcerting and dangerous. :?
I believe that the previous owner had modified the bike
I.e. Lambda probe bypassed, decat exhaust and new mapping.
So much potential for this bike, but it runs like a wounded
dog.

Not good!

Did you warm the engine up above 40 degrees before starting? I've stalled mine twice by not doing this, once on the IoM in front of two fellow Morini owners - who've never let me forget this basic ritual...

I'm on my second GP, which has now done (only) 18000 plus miles; as you say, a great bike worth persevering with!

Good riding,

Hi..
Yes, engine very hot as normal, been out a few miles before that happened.
Seat off when i got home, checked it battery terminals had been loosened and anything else that
could have dislodged itself, saw nothing that jumped out at me?

Modern bikes have a fall over relay. If you drop the bike it switches off the engine. Is there one on modern Morinis and if so maybe worth checking?

Mmmm, if that's not a wind up?
Then it is very interesting, would this relay not reset itself after the ignition key is turned on and off?
I know i was winding around a nice right hander at the time, but i'm no Rossi with me knee down... :) :lol: :lol:
