SOURCE: I have a 2002 Bourget custom chopper. Lately after

If your bike is equpped with a carburator, it sounds like you carb is not opening correctly. Remove your aif filter. Now, the the bike not running, open the throttle wide open. If your bike has an S&S Super E carb on it, you should be able to see all the way into the intake manifold. You should also see a squirt of fuel as you twist the carb to full open. Once full open, the throttle plate inside the carb should be pretty near horizonal. If not, something is wrong with your throttle cables. Check those to make sure they're adjusted properly. You should have a little freeplay at the throttle grip, about 1/16 of a turn. Just a bit, that's all.

SOURCE: 02 Yamaha xvs 650 dragstar classic that misfires when it warms up

First I would change all the spark plugs, and if that didn't make a difference then it sounds like the coil(s) are warming up and breaking down........when it starts to skip take a good pair of pliers with good rubber on them and pull each spark plug wire, when you get to the one that the running doesn't change then I would replace that particular coil

I would guess that the tires need balancing. There is a product you can buy that is a bunch of little BB's you put in the tire that will balance it. I have not used it so I would recommend taking your bike to a tire shop and have them balace it for you.

Sounds like you have a flat spot in the powerband. The "chatter" could be from detonation, or more commonly known as a "spark knock" and is usually derived from an external cause such as carbon deposits or poor fuel...A small vacuum leak will also cause it and you will hear a "popping" out the exhaust on deacceleration as unmetered air is sucked in. The timing being off just a few degrees will cause it also. Did the honda dealer sync your carbs? This is important for the absolute best performance. Troubleshoot these few areas and see what you find. The "chatter" is not good, and if left unattended it could lead to more serious damage. I hope this helps and good luck with your bike.
