My 2002 wing with 33000 runs rough

Postby LouieB » Sun Aug 30, 2015 7:41 am



At idel it runs smooth but under a load it has a bad miss and going up a hill like my driveway it sounds like a rod knocking. Anyone have a idea what to look for?

Welcome to the forum!
Gonna need more info to help you out.Such as tune-up history and maint. history.
Pretty sure when you get rid of the miss your knock will go away also.
If it were me I'd start by pulling the plugs and making sure they,re all firing good.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

No f1 light and not sure of the history. Bought the bike in 2014. Was running good last week and when I took it out yesterday the problem showed up.

Thanks for the help. I changed the plugs and the miss and the knock went away. Bad plug.

Looks like lack of service was the issue. At 30k you should have the valve clearance check. Coolant ,rear diff,brake and clutch fluids changes . And don't forget the air filter . Not fun but needed for safe ride.
Have fun and stay safe
