My '08 has 18k on it. I put the last 2K on it. It's starting to hesitate/stumble just a little bit when I'm stopped and start to accelerate slowly. It seems like its maybe the first 100-200 rpms. It feels like it could be throttle bodies in need of some cleaning. Any tips for this bike model?

I have an off idle stumble on my 08' that seems more prevalent when cold. Does yours stumble more when cold? Does it do it all the time when accelerating slowly?

Sea Foam..... $9, lots of stuff about it on here. I run it in everything.

+1. I'd put it on my pancakes in the morning if I could.

Seafoam on a rag will get the carbon and stuff out of the throttle body real easy. Then throw some in the fuel tank for good measure; to clean anything 'internal' out.

I believe they make it in a spray can now. STP has their own version of it now, comes in the same type of can and has the same ingredients. But is a couple bucks cheaper, I have been using the STP brand with the same results.

Diamond, go to the other forum & search for a post by Rasmith about this subject. He went into detail if I remember correctly. I use Seafoam, A toothbrush to get the edges of the butterflys & a clean rag soaked in Seafoam to clean the tunnels.
