03 Dl1000 'sticks' at ~3500 RPM after throttle is closed?
If anyone has any ideas, I'd REALLY appreciate it; I've had a few close encounters with the bike, and don't want to ride it until I get it fixed.
Recently I took my bike to the local dealer and had the valves adjusted, TB's sync'd and clutch basket replaced under warranty for my 2k3 DL1000. Everything felt great when I got it back, and the bike ran noticably smoother with the sync. However, several times on the ride home, when traveling specifically around 3500 RPM, when I would let off the throttle the engine would stick at ~3500 RPM. At first I thought the throttle was sticking, but it was completely disengauged with free play and I could feel the throttle stop. Also, I would pull in the clutch and the revs would still stay at ~3500. However, if I chopped the throttle, the engine would drop back to ~1200 as normal.
The wierd think is that it felt like the idle adjusted itself up, then back to normal. If instead of chopping the throttle while this happened, I instead moved it slowly, the throttle would immediately raise the RPM above ~3500, as if the ECU had compensated for a new base RPM (instead of having some free play in the throttle to get back to the throttle engaugement point where that RPM would be achieved if the bike was running normally).
So, any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking it has something to do with the TB sync the dealer did (can't imagine the valve adj. or clutch basket replacement affecting anything), but this is my first FI bike so I'm not well informed. If it's any help, I have a power commander on the bike with the proper map (which worked great before this), so not sure what else it could be. Thanks!!!!
