    Jerky fuelling

    Hello All,

    Any one had issues with the fuelling on the CT? I rode mine today, first time after the first service and it's lurching when I open the throttle, the throttle is like an ON / OFF switch it a nightmare. It's difficult to hold a constant throttle also. I'm wondering if the dealer has changed the fuel map on the service.

    Kind regards,

    Geraint

    Hi Tonpen...

    Most probably it's something they did during service but the CT is also known for not tolerate under quality gas, like the one you can get in most "third world" countries.

    hi tonpentrewinger, do you trust the garage you used or is it your regular fill up point.
    I'm sure vmfpg isnt calling Wales third world, its a beautiful country and has some of the best roads i love to ride.
    Hope you sort the problem economically enough.  :028:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    Hi Pistnbroke

    You're right; I'm not.

    Some bikes seem to be very sensitive to excess throttle slack. Rough ground, slow speed and low gear made mine very jumpyas every jolt meant my movement was magnified by the slack. It was improved  lot by adjusting nearly  all the slack out of the cable.

    Worth a check first. Some dealers reset it to factory spec which is too much in my case. If that's ok then get it back to the dealer and get them to fix it.

    Good luck

    Hey Tonpentrewinger,

    I have the exact same problem, heard it was an issue on these bikes but took one out for a test ride, 3 hours, specifically looking for this issue and did not find it to be a problem. I went ahead and  bought one and found my bike to be completely different then the demo I rode. Asked the dealer to check it at the 1000km service and they said there was no problem. This is by far the worst bike I have ever ridden, I am going to have the dealer check it again and contact Honda if they can't fix it. Makes me not even want to ride, it's that bad. Can't believe Honda would manufacture a bike this bad!! I've owned Honda's for 30 years and never had a problem. If this is not fixed on next service I will never own another Honda again! Good luck with yours and let me know if it gets fixed.

    Just got mine this week. I agree the throttle response is very sensitive and more so over undulating roads. Not sure I would return it because of this, and I have returned the infamous BMW GT 1600 before now !  Nice bike in the twisties and I love the V4.  Having owned a number of ST 1300s I am pleased to be back on a Honda.
