High Idle

High idle can also be a symptom of a sticking advance unit. One way to check while the bike is idling is to quickly turn the key off and on again without letting the bike stop running. If the idle drops, you know it;s time to remove, clean and grease the inside of the advance unit. Note: it's a very specific grease BMW recommends, available from Capitol Cycle.
