Hesitation on acceleration and high speeds
Back to pick the knowledgeable peoples brains.
As some know, I recently rebuilt a K1200RS. This entailed replacing the crank and con rods.
So in my rush to get the bike done, I didn't notice that the hall effect sensor should be marked before being removed. So now it is in TDC roughly...and it goes.
Problems I have though are that when I crank open the throttle, the rpm rises to around 2500 slowly, and then it suddenly lurches like I would have expected from the off. I am also getting some smoke at 1/2-5/8ths throttle blips. Then at motorway speeds, it feels as if the bike hesitates, like I am backing off the throttle ever so slightly.
I get good strong sparks, the leads are in very good condition and the spark plugs are clean.
The thing is, I came across a post (possibly by Voxmagna?) about setting the ignition timing statically and now I can't find it, anyone have a link?
The BMW dealers around here are unable to get my bike up on the moditec for at least 2 weeks so I would like to have a go at fixing this myself if possible.
