Hi Ronnie    As far as I know Thor is fine  

Haven't been able to pick him up as I am one armed at the moment  

Still have Bikers B125, hoping that they might come over and swap the bikes for me  


Thanks for asking

Alex from Bikers brought him back and swapped him for the loan bike, he said everything seems to be running ok now, fingers crossed

Julie
Don`t be daft to push yourself, as it may cause more damage. Take it easy and do a bit at a time.

You probably know why I am bringing this back to the top   Yep, he is back in the shop! Broke down outside of Lucy's school on Tuesday  

Took an hour and a half and two different recovery trucks to get me and my bike to the shop! Mind you the kids in the school, including Lucy, thought it was great fun to watch it being loaded, I was flippin freezing by then though  

They think it might be something to do with the alternator (dont know if that is spelt right)

The Vespa  looks a good option at the moment

I hope your dealers find the (probably simple) solution.  Otherwise a(n) (escorted) trip to JT's might be in order.

Hi to all.

New member from Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Was very interested in problems julie13bailey is having with Thor.

My 2004 x9 500 sounds like it was having problems not unlike Thor's. In the end i discovered the exact situations that this would happen and i could at least replicate those every time, which was handy for the dealer.

My bike would only misbehave with 2 up (me 88kg & pillion approx 65kg).
Bike would run rough/backfire and or just stop when ever riding over a lay back kerb eg driveway entrance.
As above when riding over a rough section of road eg road repair or railway lines.
On throttle idle when riding down a resonable slope eg coasting at 40kmh using brake to slow down.
Would be less of a problem with the suspension wound out for the heaviest setting.

After all of this, is was pretty obvious to me (though it would have been highly possible that i was not even close) that there was a damaged cable effected by the suspension deflection.

To cut a long story short, my dealer to their credit found a faulty engine position sensor wire. Zip tied cable had from factory been pulled that tight on the frame, that when movement (bumps in the road) happened between frame and motor the lead would either partially or fully seperate.

Unfortunately for me my bike was out of warranty (12 months in Australia)

I was a happy young fella when all was fixed.

I hope this helps you, if not kindly disregard.

Peter

Hello Peter & welcome!

You'll have seen that several members reside in your neck of the Bush.  

I seem to think that in the dim and distant past, mention was made of tight Zip Ties and maybe something we should all be reminded of.

Glad your problem's sorted and thank goodness for decent dealers.
