Well, that bridge is here, I guess. Time for Dyna to sink or swim...AFAIC.
I just pulled my 'replacement' Dyna2000 off the bike. For the last month or so, I have been having incredibly hard starting, and real crappy running until the bike heats up, whenever I ride...on the centerstand as I do every winter.
Symptoms are almost identical to those when my original Dyna2000 bit the dust. But because I have not actually been 'on the road', but only 'stationary', I have been idleing the bike enough to get past the terrible crap, then when it is warm...it purrs as always.
I have checked everything I can think of...short of removing the tank and petcock.
Today, after going thru the usual hard starting/poor running, I shut her down and decided to replace the Dyna w/ the OEM unit.
Like magic, my ride JUMPS to life, and the throttle acts as it always has...smooooooth, throughout the rpm range. Ran the bike for about 15min as usual, and everything was super.
We'll see what DynaTek does about this...my original unit was bought in Sept03, crapped out and replaced in Aug04, and the 'new' unit lasted barely 6mo.
I'll be sending it back to them this week...keep ya posted!
