I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

I doubt the battery would cause such an issue. It actually sounds like it could be water (condensation) in the fuel. I would suggest trying dry gas before you do anything else.

Hi,
Could be ignition coils failing or injectors. Don't know the mileage on your car, but could be worn out engine too. Change your oil often?

Hard to start. when accelerating it seems very


If the engine is not spitting or sputtering, the plugs are fine. If they were fouled, the engine would not run well at all. Probably just the fuel is stale. Today's fuels don't hold up in the tank like they use to do. Once you get that fuel run out and put some fresh fuel in the bike it should run like it always did before the surgery.

The sputtering was a bit of water in the bad gas you got and the smoke was probably from a bit of diesel fuel that was put into a gasoline storage tank in error. The temp guage going bad is just one of those things that happen from time to time, probably just a bad sensor. The idle speed change is a bit quirky but easy to adjust. Stick a fresh set of plugs in the bike and the starting problem should clear up.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

After a tune up,what can cause it to sputter and mis-fire?


I believe you may have the spark plug gap a bit too wide.
