Another sunny Sunday and another frustrating ride out. Given there seems to be a pattern (albeit just twice now) I thought i’d see if anyone else is getting the same. I posted this on 6th April (around 14 posts in): https://www.accessnorton.com/NortonCommando/reluctant-starting.27514/ What I didn’t mention was the restart issues were after filling up with fuel (it wasn’t empty as only took £11. Today I rode some 12 miles and was planning another 100 miles so stopped off to add fuel, only took a gallon to fill it up. I go to start it, side stand was up, not in gear, not expecting any problems..... guess what, wouldn’t start at all. Had to push over to the parking bays. Same as before, would start if gave it some throttle but mega lumpy, farting and banging, and if I came off the gas would instantly stall. I noticed black smoke this time. Tried a couple of turn off and back on again wondering if I could reset ECU, no change. I was 12 miles from home so had to leave the petrol station and try to get home, so just gave it a few thousand revs throttle and jerked and spluttered up the road. A few miles in it kind of cleared and was pleasant enough but still not right with the odd miss here and there. Amongst all this it’s still idling high 70% of the time. So all in all not a great day again. I’m up to 260 miles now and can’t wait to get this all sorted. It really needs to be back to the factory, but would rather wait until the 600 m service as it’s 250 miles from home. Why post here, i guess just interested if the filling up with fuel situation is connected at all. Bike probably been started 50 times now, but these two major issues where I thought it wouldn’t even get me home were both after topping up with fuel. Coincidence? Maybe,but I suspect not.
