My 650 burgman has a miss at low speeds

I am not too familar with the 650 burgman but the missing problem is a universal problems on most of these bikes. Now this can one of a few problems from my experience.
1: it can be that the mufler has a small hole before the silencer this can be checked in various ways one of the best way to do this is to add a little bit of engine oil to the gasoline (only if its a 2 stroke engine) and shake it a little turn it on so the oil get in to the caborator and it will smoke a little then you can block the end of the exhaust mufler while its on and look to see where it is leaking from, if there aren't any holes it will stifle sound like it dying down and might eventualy cutts off.Now if there is a hole and its to small to let out enough exhaust for the engine to operate it might shut off also so you might have to to check carefully for the hole. That's the hole problem
2: The gasket for the manifold might be going or have some damages therefore this will cause it to miss a lot but if it's not completely gone it will only give asmall miss now this is in need of replacement, like always the replacement are not like the originals so a good advice is make sure who ever doing the job uses the right silicone and let it dryproperly at least 15 minutes before starting up. Oh another way to check the problem is to ride at an exalerated speed and while slowing down applying break reve the ex a little but not too much for the engine to kick and when you reve and release you will hear the missing after and listen carefully you will hear if its from the minifold area or the mufler it self the minifold might give you a double miss
