New (to me) Bandit owner

Post  Beagle on Sat 06 May 2017, 8:30 am

Hi all, just got a 06 1200s last week. Awesome bike to ride after 20+ years off a road bike. 31000ks but seems to run on after riding, when I stop it is idling at around 3000rpm if I release the clutch a bit the revs drop down but nearly stalls. Any ideas?
Cheers

Welcome Beagle

Damn good tuneup including carby balance would be the bet place to start IMHO

Welcome Beagle ..............yep ,a good full tune up and service / do you know the service history re valve clearances etc ?, & I would check for any air leaks ( there are also some rubber caps on the carbies where you connect the vacuum hoses to balance the carbies that can perish  ) It hasn't done many KM  , so if it has been sitting around ,you might then try cleaning the carbies if it's still doing it  .

If we ever manage to get a Edenhope MKII (or Francis) SA-Vic get together going you might like to join t, pretty sure you'd be the closest by a long way

Welcome along Beagle.
Try something very simple first, give the throttle cable a lube, it may be binding up a bit. A good tune wouldn't go astray as well.
