Sounds like the coil. Had the same problem with a Sportster, changed coil. As coil ages it breaks down, heat expands internal connections and coil fails. When cooled, coil contracts and the contacts come back together. This COULD be your problem, not sure. Do you have a buddy that will let you try his coil for a test?

2 7 engine in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring with 84000 miles and and cylinder 2 is misfiring will a tuneup fix the problem


miss fire can be a number of things weak spark plug damaged lead, faulty knock sensor or a problem with the injector.. clean the spark plugs check them for changes between them. there should be no real difference on them but black soot etc is a chance its over ritch. water getting in to the spark plug or a damaged rubber seal on the plug connector can also cause this problem so would check for this to. would say its the spark plug area my self.

Idle speed around 2000 rpm, 1st ride of the year , had this issue. I followed my Manual info and adjusted Cold and Hot adjustments. When restarted the idle was close to normal, but after a minute or 2...


Adjust the idle speed ONLY when the engine is at full operating temp. It should be idled at about 1000 RPM. It will probably be too low when cold and you may have to use the throttle control to keep the engine running until it gets completely warmed up. On the carburetor equipped engines, you cannot adjust the bike where it will idle cold and not be too high when it gets hot. The only way you can get this is with fuel injected models.

Good Luck

Bike moves forward in first gear w/ clutch pulled in. New cables just put on. only does this when bike is hot and been run hard.


when things get hot the expand, so you need to adjust the clutch about a turn more so the clutch releases a little more, to do this there is an adjustment in the clutch cable.
