Rpm's Jumping around

1833 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Firefly
Hello all,
I have an 2006 dl650 and have done most of the work and maintenance on the bike myself.
I recently have noticed that the rpms in a non loaded condition, are really jumping at like 2000 - 3500 rpms. I can hold the throttle still in my hand and it just does what it wants jumping around. There are 6000 miles on the bike. I have checked the play in the throttle cable, and it is in the range of the manual.

Any suggestions, or is this common.

Thanks in advance.

The sound carries with the tack as well.
Everything seems to run smoother at higher rpms, once over 4k.
I am wondering if their is too much play in the cable, and I measured it wrong. The measuring system the manual states seems there could be some error. Would this be a symptom of too much play in the cable?

Would this be a symptom of a throttle body problem.
Thanks guys, I will look into the Throttle Body sync, as that should be in order anyways.
