Plastic Throttle Body Pulley

Post by Moosietoo »

Hi All, This is my first post.
Went for a ride on Monday with friends and one has a 2009 R1200RT with 50+K. Pulling onto the freeway at a onramp and accelerating in 70mph traffic, his bike suddenly goes dead and he is able to get to the shoulder and off the roadway after almost getting hit. We back tracked to his location and his bike would start and idle but as soon as you touched the throttle it would stall.
Well we had no idea and after his tow home and upon further investigation he found this. A broken left Throttle Body Pulley for the throttle cable. The pulley is made of plastic. Very dangerous situation. So on your next service be sure and check that plastic pulley for cracks.

Thanks for sharing.  I'll definitely inspect mine based on this.
