Hey all,While I enjoyed my V85TT Travel for the 1st day yesterday, I took it out today and after about a 90min, it sputted for a few seconds and then died. I tried starting it and it turned over but did not start. Had it towed home and reached out to dealer for tues opening.I know MG bikes are known to be quirky but after 1 day of ownership??? No warning lights or engine links. Perhaps a slight winding noise later into my ride....
Like I mentioned, it has gas, no warning light come on, opened up and closed gas cap , it almost turned over but not quite, sounded like a faint metal on metal grinding sound?
Are you saying the starter motor is no longer cranking the motor over? The sound you are describing could be the solenoid opening and closing attempting to close the contacts to engage the starter motor but failing too for insufficient voltage.If so it's a bad battery or bad connection.Could be battery want charging or could be damaged or there's a loose connection in the battery or charging circuit.
My vote also.
I the other post you said warning lites come on at 4500rpm, can you explain?
Just went out, popped off seat connections are all tight, fuses in place, bike cranks over and sounds like it wants to go, all gauges light up but like i said earlier, there is an ever so faint sound of what sounds like metal on metal....the 4500rpm is just a break in warning i think not to exceed
Is this is a new bike purchased from a Guzzi dealer? If so, Iíd be tempted to let them troubleshoot it.
He's going too. But the dealers is no open on Sunday. While I'm all in on let the dealer handle it but if was something simple like a loose battery terminal or out of fuel that got me and my new bike up and running I go for it.
Thanks for all the tips, dealer is closed sun/mon but hopefully they can pick it up tues and diagnose and repair it quick and reimburse me my 150 tow fee or work something out service costs, etcIll advise what the culprit was when resolved
That really sucks. Hang in there, don't let it get you down, let the dealer sort it out, and get a good report from them on what they found.
