Erratic Sputtering... Just got the bike - 2006 1100 Yamaha Silverado - on 4/30. Had 710 miles on it. It seems to be sputtering erratically. Sometimes I'll hear a sharp 'ping' - wondering if you have any information regarding this item. Thanks in advance!!!

This my be water in your fuel tank. Maybe it was there when you got it or it came in with the fuel. Drain all the fuel from your tank, both main and reserve and also your carborators. Then put fresh fuel in. This may solve your problem.

Three years with that few miles sounds like a good candidate for bad gas. I would start by taking the carb off and cleaning it really well with carb cleaner.

Sputtering at low rpm ttr230

Run some carb cleaner through the tank. "Seafoam" has a real following. It could be that the jets are crudded up, especially if your bike sat some over the winter.

Try cleaning your MAF sensor. Its on your air intake box held down by 2 screws. Can use MAF cleaning spray or electrical contact cleaner. e8e0082a-ebe4-49c3-9d91-dd3d16ae0387.jpg

When i take off from a stop light my bike spits and sputter from 1000 rpm to 3500rpm when it reaches 4000 rpm it starts to clear up.

Hi, Rumblinstump and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Pinholes or torn diaphragm.
6. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
7. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
8. Fuel level in bowl too low.
9. Restricted fuel supply passages.
10. Plugged jets or passages.
11. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. The enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

The dealer is not interested.
The bike is set up very lean to meet emissions standards. Any of them will benefit from larger jets. It's probably running too lean.

sounds like a ignition problem, try new cap rotor and wires and plugs if this does not fix your problem it is either your coil or distribitor
