'01 929: problem starting, noise at idle
I'm gonna take it into a shop next week, but was curious if you guys might have an idea...
When I start the bike cold, it fires up, then conks out. If I give it some gas, then it'll stay running and warm up. During warm-up, there is a metallic clunking sound about once every 5 seconds. When the bike's up to temp though, no clunking. The bike seems to start & run fine when warm .
Also, the red MIL light blinks with the kickstand down, stays lit with the kickstand up, andthe FI indicator is on.
Any ideas? - is it ok to ride it to the shop? The noise during the warm-up period is a little disconcerting.
