Bike was running bad
« on: August 13, 2018, 10:01:26 pm »
Bike was running bad. Seems to have come on all of a sudden. When it’s cold, not to bad. After engine warms up it has no power 1/2 - full throttle. At cruise speed it acted like wind gusts are hitting you. At idle it acted like it’s running on 3 cyl and backfires out of both exhausts until abt 3k. Talked to Steve and he suggested changing the ignition pickups because it was a heat thing. Changed them out and everything seems to be fine now. Just wanted to post this to give others the info.
