I'm often stock in traffic and when the engine is hot, it misses at idle... Engine runs steady and rpm then drop a few hundreds and then get back to normal for a few seconds. Otherwise, engine runs greats. Any idea?
Shouldn't need higher octane... And if it doesn't do it when cold, it shouldn't be a blocked pilot jet or similiar. I doubt it's the battery... I know fuelling issues can change a lot depending on engine temperature, but I'm having a brain fade as to which it is that becomes worse when hot, anyone help me?
Check your plugs, see how the wash is on them after you have the bike idling and experience the problems, cut out the bike and then pull the plugs. You could have a weak plug or something that is making it week after it has been sitting idleing, perhaps you have a float bowl slightly out of spec?
