    Miss when cold runs well when hot?

    Ok, So I have a 1989 full power bike with 20k kms. It starts right up no issues, but runs very rough, pooping etc And the left rear cylinder is def not firing as the exhaust header is cold. After I take off and run for maybe 5 mins, the bike comes good and runs great, pulls like a train...

    Need some good advice. And I KNOW this is the place to get it. Very knowledgeable and helpful folks here! '89 V-Max (my 3rd one), 24K miles, all stock as far as I can tell. Had been sitting a year w/o starting, and only 250 miles in last 3 years. New battery. Drained fuel tank and carbs...

    hello all and hope everyone is having a great day. I am new here and not sure where to go to find answers but maybe someone here can help me. I have recently bought an 07 vmax (which I love) but it has developed a miss during low speed (1/8 throttle) operation. It has super trap slip ons...

    aim small, miss small

    Yes, I borrowed that line from American sniper. A coon has been getting my chickens. We usually lock them in at night, but they do get forgotten about from time to time. Saw the bandit dragging one up a tree. Last night momma spotted her on the back porch eating our mouser cat's food...

    Engine miss

    2001, stock, cobra pipes. Just started a miss at about 5500 RPM and goes away instantly when you hit 7000. It's very similar to the miss when you didn't see the low fuel light came on. Do I have a fuel problem? Or? Thanks in advance.

    Miss

    The left rear cylinder, number 1 I think, seems to be dead at idle. When I pull the plug wire, there is no change. I checked and re-gapped all plugs. I made sure each plug was firing. Also, when I turn the mixture screw all the way in, there is no change. All other cylinders cause a change...

    Miss ,crack,pop.....

    Looking for ideas on what the problem could be......... Bike runs perfect until it gets hot....after 10 miles or so, at low RPM it wants to skip, miss, sputter , backfire.....nail the throttle and it will come to life. Whats really strange is its not all the time,as in saturday I rode 60 miles...
