Hi! My '84 UK spec 900 suffers some hesitation and a low (500) rpm idle when cold. I've checked the cold start valve and auxillary air-valve and they're working fine. The warm up regulator gives a resistance of 20ohms hot or cold, is this correct? The feed is 13.5V at idle. I have a spare regulator I could use, this gives a reading of 200 ohms. Also my gearbox crunches when I engage 5th, if I'm careful it goes in smooth, I think the syncros going. It doesn't do it in any other gear, but its strange why 5th should go first? Also is 15W-50 Castrol GTX safe to use in the gearbox? I dunno whats in there at the moment.. Christian Baillies <chrisbnopsamdy.mew.co.uk> <chrisb1273nopsamcom>
