Thread: 2014 500EXC Pops and dies off idle, Valve Adjustment Needed?

    Default 2014 500EXC Pops and dies off idle, Valve Adjustment Needed?

    They've never been checked. Low hours for age of bike. Popped and died a few times yesterday. Never done that before, thinking it's time to check and adjust valves. Procedure looks pretty straight forward.
    Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Yeah, now that I think about it, it's probably the tps...
    I'll check that thing. Easier than checking valves.

    Well I didnt say not check the valves, but I doubt thats the issue.

    Ive only seen a tps fail , like once in a blue moon

    probably fuel pump or injector related , if a kronic issue to where its unridable.


    turn fuel pump on and see if fuel in the tank is very stable

    I would look at fuel filter and then fuel injector and then fuel pump.
