First check all spark plugs(NGK are a good brand) / HT leads / plug caps. Secondly, Check that the valves are properly gapped - if they are tight they will leak the cylinder gases past the valve(s) and this will cause a misfire. A losse or leaking manifold will also. if you have aftermarket pipes then it may need to be rejetted to suit. If you got them at a dealer they will know the right jets. I couldnt find an english manual but here is a german on that may help with diagrams etc... Good luck. Rate if good.

SOURCE: fuel mixture screw
Begin by screwing the mixture screw in all the way until it stopps,,,but ONLY JUST STOPS,,,,,DONT FORCE IT,,,then look at the top of the screw slot,,and call that 12 oclock,,,now turn the screw out to you three full turns going through 12oclock,,that means 12 to 12 is one turn.
then start the bike,,,finish your adjustments now by slowley turning the screw outwards until the engine starts to misfire,,,at this point turn the screw back in one half to three quarters of a turn.Now you have the mixture set roughly.
For fine tuning,, you need to use a monometer while turning the mixture screw
Best of luck...

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.

start by synchronizing your throttle plates. Honda calls the next step the "idle drop procedure". u need to know if you have fuel adj. screws or air adj. screws. fuel screws will be on engine side of carb slide, air screws will be on airbox side of carb slide. start leaning out mixture, (turn in fuel screw, turn out air screw. idle will increase so keep adjusting idle back to spec.after each turn if needed. Adjust about 1/4 to 1/2 turn at a time on each carb until there is no change in idle, then richen up mixture by one half turn. If u sync throttle plates first then follow this procedure, there should be no hesitation when you "blip" the throttle, and after revving it should return to idle smooth,
