    Default Ideling

    Hot day upper 80s road for about two hours on the highway around 70mph.
    When we exited off the interstate our Spyders started to have ideling problems like it wanted to shut down, I kept the throttle up a little bit so it didnít die.
    any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Are your cooling fans running a lot? Did you get some bad gas some where?

    I just filled up before hitting the road, I always put in the highest grade of gas. Iím not sure about the fans, music is to loud.

    I hope it it was the gas.

    You said that your spyders, like there was more than one doing this? If so gas would be a good place to start in my book. Good luck!

    Your problem is that you got some high test gas with water in it! My Harley's ahead of my Spyders would do that! I don't buy anything but regular gas on the road and put some octane booster in it! So few cars now require a 93 octane gas that the gas sits in under ground tanks for months causing water to confiscate and build up in the tank! Several times, I have had to haul my harley's home! Just add some octane booster to your fuel and occasionally use some fuel injector cleaner in it! After starting this method, no more problems! Buy high octane gas only hat home where you know the fuel is good!

    I'd vote bad gas. Your best insurance against such a happening is to fill at high volume facilities.
