Author Topic: Poor Thor  (Read 35425 times)

Poor Thor is very poorly

Sunday morning he kept cutting out and miss fired a couple of times but when we went on the ride-out he seemed so much better.

Got him out of the garage this morning and he cut out a couple of times, on the way to the childminder he kept on cutting out and miss firing (making a hell of a noise), managed to get to work and phoned Bikers, they said to try and take him over straight away (they are very nice people)

Got him there and they had a look at him, couldn't find anything, the mechanic took it out for a ride and it happened to him too

So Thor is still there and and I am bikeless

Still at least I get to have the day off, one good thing I suppose

Sorry to hear that Julie.

Get them to re-fix the left "Lucy-peg" as well, while they're at it.

How strange, Thor seemed to go very well on Sunday. Did they have a loan bike to give you? I hope all is well soon

They did have a loan bike to give me but it is like a death trap, rode it once before when my 125 died

Luckily I am off on my hols on Saturday for 2 weeks so won't be needing it, so will just have the rest of the week off

Probably something simple like a loose or dirty connection hopefully.

Next time you talk to them, give them hell, for not letting you know what`s happening.

I phoned them today at 3.15pm, Mike said Kev (the mechanic) was on the phone and that he will ring me back when he is off the phone

Well I am still waiting and it is 9.10pm


I didn't know bike shops stayed open so late

Or they might not have got round to looking at it yet as generally I am not one for complaining

Maybe they thought they could leave it a while

Julie, they'll get to it.  They know you as a customer - do they know you are a member of this club?  I'm sure they're aware of our existence.

It might be one of those problems that has a multitude of possible solutions, so could take time.  Just in case it's a known problem, then ring Tony at JT's for a first-thing-to-check diagnosis.  If it's not (whatever he says) then could take some time.

Me, I'd check HT lead integrity, then other Italian connectors before assuming anything major.  When it works, it works, right?  So must be a duff connector or switch somewhere.

Rather well done (except for the security of the left-hand one) extra pegs for a 7-year old called Lucy. (She might be 8 by now)

Do keep up at the back...

Went into Bikers today, can't rely on them phoning me

The bike was in pieces

Saw Kev (the mechanic) he said they could find nothing wrong at all

The other mechanic is going to put it back together and road test it, as I am on holiday from tomorrow they have 2 weeks to keep scratching their heads

Phil is going to sing to Thor for me when he takes his bike in for a service (sorry Phil, couldn't keep that to myself) ::

Well I am back from sunny Devon    

Bikers could not find anything wrong with Thor so I am picking him up at 4pm so I can judge it for myself

Must remember to take my roadside recovery details with me

Had this happen on my Skipper or something similar, turned out it was the air inlet to the air filter box that while not blocked, had rotten leaves in it and was restricting the airflow - every time it got some damp air, the leaves would swell and the engine would cut and behave very poorly.

Might be worth getting all the HT leads damp sprayed as well...

Welcome back Julie. Ummm, so there is a genuine problem, it even happened to their own mechanic, they've had it for 2 weeks and now there saying they couldn't find anything wrong.
Doesn't inspire confidence does it?
Hopefully the pulling apart and re-assembly has  tightened something that was coming adrift. Time will tell.
