VN750 Engine Cutting Out
My '95 is in the shop, but I anticipate a "cannot duplicate problem" response for my problems. Any suggestions that I could get would be greatly appreciated. Here's my problem description as best as I can describe it:
The engine is cutting out intermittently with no common speed or action
Ø It has happened at idle, and at various speeds
Ø The tachometer instantly drops to zero and the bike loses speed quickly
If the cutout is short, the bike will jumpstart itself at driving speeds. Other times the bike will just roll to a stop and the ignition will need to be turned off and then on again.
The starter does not start the bike when this is happening, stopped or moving
When the bike is dead, turning the ignition off and then back on corrects the problem and allows the bike to be started with the starter.
Ø When dead, with the ignition still on, the lights (oil, blinkers, etc.) remain on as though the ignition is on. However, the starter won’t work, and the bike won’t jump itself if moving in this condition.
The length of the cutout varies from a second or two or sometimes until the ignition is cycled off and then on.
Sometimes the bike can be driven for miles without problems. Other times the problem has happened repeatedly within a very short distance.
Thanks in advance!!
