Starting problems

My Afi seems to have lost the cold start set up ?

it wont start without opening the throttle and some times wont start for ages from cold

my dealer has scanned the sensors and cant find anything wrong but acknowledges there is a problem with my bike as he has had issues starting the bike and has asked me to book it in for a through check and he will try to find the problem. it pops and hisses when it does start but runs okay when warm

has anyone else had a problem and what was the cure

I know how to start a modern bike up so it is not me

ECU has been re set and a sweep of all sensors has been done with no issues

My dealer tells me its been diagnosed as a temperature sensor , they have put in a warranty claim (on a 21 day old bike mmmmmm) as soon as that's authorized and if the part is stocked in the uk I will get it back

hopefully its sorted (just the grips to sort out and I will be a happy biker . com)

worth keeping your eye out for bike cutting out when cold

as that's the start of it

Mind you even if the crankshaft had dropped out the bike and bounced down the road Hondas official line would be "its a electrical issue"

be glad to have it back as its a great bike to ride and fun

I can't do as you say just yet. I won't see my bike until August.
I do appreciate you guys telling us what things to watch out for.

Don't ever buy a BMW, rather than fix the "first run niggles" they change the model, usually every 7 years.

Bwahahahaahaha! Advice taken!

I've had a problem-free Honda Civic for the last 8 years and ran a Honda 250 Tornado for 2 years of abuse in Honduras and that thing never missed a beat. Ran into a guy doing a 2 year trip across the USA, and then Baja to Tierra del Fuego on a NCX700 and all he ever did was change brake pads and tires. Not a single hiccup. I feel confident that Honda have a good product, despite the kinks in this first run of the Africa Twin.

Waiting to get my wings back.

if you look on the general post another owner has posted a video of exactly the same problem loos like we all have a issue around the corner ??

my dealer tells me they are still waiting for Honda to authorize the warranty claim , its taken Honda five days so far and I am still waiting, starting to get p******d off now as this is unacceptably poor service for a 21 day old bike with only 700 odd miles on the clock to be off the road for a week for a small item like a sensor.

come on Honda this is crap service
