Ignition problem - thoughts

Post by Dazza »


This problem has suddenly got worse, had occasional backfire so cleaned carbs, plugs etc.

Now recently. :(

Bike rides well for short distances, then after while seems to loose power, been occasional backfiring for a while, well tonight died. After while managed to get it home lower right and top pipe cool, left pipe hot!. Don't think fuel issue tanks full, breather ok, have transparent filter see fuel, carbs cleaned recently. Never ridden in wet so not water problem, limping home occasional (very) other cylinders would chime in. Plugs changed recently < 100 miles.

My thought is it coil breaking down as it gets warm have not had time to look at anything yet, just after thoughts in case I have missed anything obvious.
