My bonnie has had a throttle stop restrictor kit fitted recently. last night it was high revving and not idling properly, the oil warning light was on and it kept stalling then just stopped. Any ideas?

If it stopped while the oil pressure light was may have damaged your engine. Your best path here would be to take to a dealer and have them check the bike out. Yes, I know this can be costly, but you are risking possible motor damage here, which is BIG bucks. Sorry don't have happier ideas.

Up and down revving issues

Well it sounds like you have multiple issues:
Stopping the car is first due to safety concerns. If you can not properly stop the vehicle, then DO NOT drive it until the brake system is properly serviced and functional.
Find someone who can read the trouble codes on the vehicle to see what the onboard diagnostics is attempting to tell you.
Once you have the trouble codes, then report back for assistance.
Stop Driving before you cause a serious accident.

Over revving

New throttle cable?

Was it properly adjusted?
There should be just a little slack when throttle grip is at idle position.

Check cable routing, making sure there are no sharp bends, or it's hanging up on something.

Finally, lube the cable.

Engine revving

sounds like the stop pin has been moved check on the throttle there is a little stop screw see if it is coated in muck and the part that the throttle arm hits the pin. someone may have moved its setting before hand. and now the problem has been fixed with a new timing belt the timing is right and engine is running smooth. if engine is pinking the timing belt is still not set properly and this is the reason for high revving. timing is to advanced. and needs reseting.

My idle is high and can't get it to get back to around 700rpms. i was driving home one night turned on my road then it started this problem of idleing high, never stops, when the car starts it idles around...

What kind of vehicle is it? Try the throttle position sensor if it has one. If it has a carburator the choke is probably not working properly and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

Recently had trouble with idol revving up and down and temp guage in car reading high though card was not overheating. Thermostat was replaced and now I am having same trouble plus the car will ****...

could be idle stop sensor.mine does the same, should be under the manifold cover,..check w/ dealership autozone may be able to run scan. There are three sensors the above,.and the oxygen sensor and the maf sensor.It should stop Idle hunting when in drive,.due to the other two override it when signals dont match.. Have it scanned. I am in same boat,.Mine ran hot but didnt steam til december 1st I blew the head to heater hose 80 bucks to repair but then I still ran hot and steamed,.today I replaced the radiator,Fins were completely shot..lost tranie fluid due to a transmission coolant fitting breaking,.put it together ran to autozone and it's over heating again. So I have to think replace temperature switch,thermostate(Again) .Check to see if it looks like there is a fine spray of fluid after you shut it of. Maybe a small leak in top hose. When it goes,.you'll end up like me w/o heat due to plugged heater core. But the Idle stop sensor is usually the culprit to idle hunting. It may just be lose rather than faulty.Prices I have seen ran from 95 to 295 bucks. Good luck!! Erin
