Rush expert advice needed! GP1300R Runaway?
I'm going to test tomorrow and most probably buy a 2004 GP1300R.
But it seems to have a similar behavior of a lean runaway!?!? Is that possible on an EFI ski?
When started at the trailer the engine starts to rev up really high without touching the throttle.
No mods, Is a completely stock ski.
The owner says that a mechanic advice him to replace the wiring that comes from the front of the ski to the electric box.
That doesn't make any sense to me, but I dont know anything about efi GPR I have always had carbed GPRs

Revs should be steady even more on an efi ski

It accelerates by itself as if it was on full throttle. I have seen it on carbed engines and I have read that it happens with old fuel (dieseling) or an air leak.
I think on an EFI ski maybe is related to a sensor?
I also noticed that when the engine turns off , there is still something that sounds running for like 15-20 seconds, I dont know if that is normal, is that the fuel pump?

same thing happened on my 03 gp1300. the throttle cable corroded and stuck open. There is a factory recall on all 03 to 08 gp1300's. they will replace your throttle cable for free. doesn't matter if you're the original owner. there is a post in the sticky section about it.
