rough idle 2003 sportster 4 tec
Posted 08 November 2010 - 12:30 PM
What could be causing the rough idle (really just above idle)? Could it be this shut off solenoid which the dealer recommended (which is, BTW, a $200 part). The original one does click when I turn the boat on. I even took it off to inspect and lube, seems to go in and out fine, though maybe a bit sluggish. Don't know how long the gas has been in there, though does not smell bad, and boat does run strong at higher rpm. Added Stabil and enzyme cleaner. Any recommendations as to where to start?
Also, this boat sounds like a garbage disposal when out of the water. I have read lots of prior posts that say the "bag of rocks" sound is normal, but this is LOUD. Seems to me bearings are shot. Is this hard to replace? Am I causing damage by running this way? Seems fine in water, with no slippage, no unusual sounds.
Thank you in advance for your help. This seems like a very helpful community. Hoping to get this thing running reliably. My kids are itching to go wakeboarding...
