I bought an 01 rsv in July and have had no problems...untill today. I am a newbie on ALL bikes so I don't even know where to start.
I came up to a stop and as I started to go the bike seemed to stall for 1/2 second as I tried to accellerate.
Then a little further down the road it started stuttering at about 4k rpm and backfiring a little bit. I thought maybe it was out of gas so I filled it up. Started up just fine. As I rode it a bit more the problem got worse and worse.
I fianally got it home. New systems developed on the way. The Tach started jumping around, engine would rev but slowly and would start to stall out under load. Then the turnsignals started fast flashing but all the bulbs were fine, Gas light came on. Then the tach and dash shut off completelly but the head light was still on but very dull. I shut off the bike and tried to start it again a few hours later and NOTHING happened.
Any Ideas? I am thinking it is REALLY JACKED up and would really appreciate any help.
