Re: engine misfires

Check the carb’s choke plunger, when you push choke off. I had a case that left carb plunger stayed a bit open. Was a choke cable /carb mechanism issue.

Re: sporadic fuel issue

I had about similar symptons when I had placed an extra tube from carbs ventilation pipe to down under bike (that’s a no no...). But it appeared always just when raining, I think tires threw water and maybe blocked the tube end and ventilation for carb bowls failed. Yours is most likely missing fuel...

Re: fuel, ignition or worse peoblem?

If you follow that vacuum line from ECU, you should find a t-connected short vacuum hose in that ORN line. It has a plastic plug what you can remove. I don’t know if this is originally made for service. It is somewhere visible in right side. While back I tested mine and removing vacuum from ICU (88-...

Re: Fork Oil Change

When I refurbished completely my OEM front forks 2 years ago, I made diy removal tool, drilled holes to caps and made threads and placed screws with seals. Now it is super super easy to change fork oil ;)

Maybe I should move to Progressives, at the moment I don’t know what I’m missing :D
