Hey guys. Any help is greatly appreciated.
2008 DL650 ABS
After a couple hours of twisties, I re-entered civilization... approached a country intersection stop sign.
As we all do, I pulled in the clutch, shifted to first gear and coasted to a stop.
I then proceeded to let the clutch out and proceed in first gear. The tachometer needle began to climb gently to about 4k then hiccuped and stalled.
I shifted to neutral, pulled in the clutch, hit the starter button.
The starter did its thing, but no start... as though I had run out of gas. I was sure I had about 1/4 of a tank left, but was surprised to look down and see zero fuel bars.
I waddled to the shoulder of the road and called a friend who brought me a gallon of 91 octane, which I gratefully poured into the tank.
I attempted to start the bike several times, expecting it to fire right up, but... nothing. Just cranking and cranking.
That's when I noticed the tachometer needle was stuck at +/- 4k RPM. Turning the key to the off position did nothing to change that. On... crank... nothing... off... wait... repeat. Nothing. Tach still showing 4k RPM.
I left the bike and towed it home in my truck where it now sits as I write this post, pausing at interval to scratch my head in confusion.
The only other thing I can think to mention is that the guy I bought the bike from (about a month ago) had removed the charcoal canister, explaining that it became clogged, so he removed it. The bike is in immaculate shape otherwise, despite having about 28k miles on the odometer.
Again... thanks in advance. This is my first post. It's great to see that there are so many helpful and enthusiastic Wee riders on here!
