These tiny spark plugs will foul easily just from normal choking or even in-town riding at low throttle. Sounds like one or more cylinders drops out at times. Pull and clean the plugs, especially inners ( #2 and #3.) The sooty look is not far from a misfiring condition, so get them good and clean. Sometimes spraying firing tips with carb cleaner and then burning them with an oxygen/acetylene or other type torch can help bring back good firing metal. Unless you have a clogged carb or jet from dirty fuel or running without air filters. I bet the bike comes to life at higher rpms right? Fouling plugs. Numero uno cause for this symptom. THanks TT

    Still seems like a spark delivery issue, especially since it clears up, then reappears. Did it clear up right after you cleaned the plugs and changed HT leads? Or no effect at all?

  • Patrick Dennehy Feb 11, 2009

    When I have a ragged condition like this, I still read the plugs first. By now, maybe taking the tank off is getting quicker? Read 'em and see if they aren't sooty already. Or is one gas-fouled or wet? One more dry or different from the rest? Choke been behaving ok?

  • Patrick Dennehy Feb 12, 2009

    Any chance your petrol is contaminated with water, or getting old? Could be a batch of bad fuel; especially if spark delivery is not to blame. You ride it today? Later, Tater Todd

Hi Dick, this scenario is usually caused by a mis-wiried ignition coil, changing from a single fire coil to a dual fire or vice versa.

Miss fire after up to temp and runfor short amount of time. I get a miss fire coming to a stop..drops to cylinders or 1. will not accelerate at all boggs with miss fire.


Check your tank vent. Ride the bike until it stalls, pull over and pop open the gas tank lid. If you hear a "ffffwwwwwah" of air being sucked in when you open the tank, your air vent is blocked. The bike runs great when you start out, but as fuel is taken out of the tank no air can get in to replace it and the tank develops a vacuum.

Joe, i'm afraid we'll need some more info; year, make and model. Have you changed anything to after market like air cleaners or exhaust? How many miles are on it?

The bike may misfire at different speeds or under different conditions so one would need to know these circumstances to diagnose further than spark plugs which are cheap and a good starting place.

Mis fire full throttle


You didn\'t say what kind of exhaust you have on the bike, but if it\'s some sort of aftermarket pipe, like a Yoshi, you may want to check the baffles for carbon buildup.

I would be least suspicious of your clutch and more wary of something in the food chain. i.e. Start with possible bad gas (did you drain last years gunk outta there?.....fuel tap clean out (it doesn\'t take much to plug those small holes)....air filters....etc.

I\'m not sure if your bike is injected or carburetor, but, either way, it wouldn\'t hurt to run a half a can of the appropriate "cleaner" through the tank.

Try these tips first. Like I said, it\'s waaaay more likely to do with air or fuel than mechanical stuff like a clutch. Good luck!

You need to fix the fueling first - without fuel it won't run!
Your other problem sounds like an air leak - either the manifold or the carb. Check by spraying WD-40 or CRC at the manifold and carb join while the bike is running - if the revs change (either up or down) you have a leak.
