So I finally got a chance to buy the Bike of my dreams a 2012 GRiSO with just 2800 miles on it. Got it from a guy who picked it up because he likes Guzzis and it was a one owner bike whom he new the guy who bought and sold it. He checked it over, rode it a bit, put a new rear tire on it, changed the oil and installed a battery tender.
It was super clean, started right up and ran great. I flew to Miami and picked it up to ride it home. I rode north for a while in the rain, (couple of hundred miles) found a hotel and then rode 400 miles the next day in the clear and the heat. Was running along fine when it appeared to run out of gas. I managed to get up an on-ramp and it died not to be restarted.
I managed to get my wife to bring the Van the remaining 300 miles and we got it home. I spent the 5 hours waiting scouring the forums to determine possible problems.
I started at the fuel system expecting to find a bad filter, but it turns out someone had already done the in-tank repair. I did however find something. Inside the tank was a bunch of what I would assume is corrosion on the aluminum plate that the fuel pump is mounted to. I also found a large amount of grit of some type in the gas. I cleaned everything, ordered and put in a new filter, checked the pump, and blew the filter out to see if any particles had made it through the system. It looked as though something had as the exit port of the filter yielded some small particles. I pulled the injectors, and the left side injector broke.
I looked around and found a pair of IWP-189 injectors for the GRiSO, which it turns out are not the injectors that were originally in it, they were six hole and these are 12. I assumed that the new injectors would work though I might need to do some adjustment. I tried starting but the engine quickly hydrolocked. I took out the spark plugs and turned it over to remove any gas and it appears that the cylinder that was hydrolocking is still pushing fuel through the injector even though there is no spark. The other cylinder seems to be normal. As it turned out, that injector was bad. Through in the mismatched old injector, and it ran on one cylinder.
I checked the compression and it was zero on the right cylinder! Crap, so I pulled the rocker cover and watched as the Cam shaft did not move with the timing chain. I just went through the maint manual and see that there is supposed to be a pin to mate the shaft up. Could this have sheared. I will get into it tomorrow I hope, but wasn't ready to pull the chain tensioner parts without reading about it first.
As far as I know, the engine is stock, and one that has the roller cams from the factory after they changed. I need to do the dash sealing, I saw some condensation in the dash after the ride in the rain.
I only have about 600 miles on this bike but I love it as much as I though I would. Please help me get it running again.
