Hi Ray, I have a 2002 Honda 919 with a Power Commander 111.
In the spring a new ECT sender was installed to cure a cold start stalling condition.
This mostly worked, but as the temperature is now again dropping, the cold start stalling condition has become worse than ever.
The bike starts instantly and has throttle response as long as the start button remains depressed, upon release the engine immediately stalls, regardless of throttle position. The instant between starter disengage and headlight energize is precisely when the stall occurs. After several long seconds, guessed at by how cold it is, the start button can be released and all is normal. Its spoiling an otherwise fun bike. Many 919 owners have simply removed their PC111’s and never again had any problems, but I really like the throttle response the PC11 provides, despite years of this issue. A solution would be well received. Thank you.
