Big Al, Has the ign. been modified or does she have points? If your bike has points / condenser Ign. The points are out of adjustment, or worn down to the point they are not opening. This will also change timing as they wear, causing, popping and low power. I do not remember the Ign. set up on this model. Hope this helps.

Why is bike misses at 2000rpm, new plugs fitted could it be leads?, Not a misfire but like a break in the sparking system?


sounds like a fuel issue, how long has the bike been sitting? You said it is worse in certain weather conditions, so i don't think electrical would act up in different weather conditions. I am not sure if your bike has carbs or fuel injection. If it has carbs, you most likely have dirty pilot jets.

Sputtering and pops


sounds like a carb problem sticky floats. they work in exactly the same way as in ur toilet. cutting off fuel at a certain level. if the fuel goes over that level it will begin to flood, acting like you continually have the choke on or even worse. it cud be electrical but because you say you can smell gas i recon carbs. if you put the tap on prime(if it has that option) does fuel start leaking, if so this confirms it. alternatively leaving the engine running to allow the vacuum fuel tap to remain open, does fuel start leaking.

What could be wrong?


I would check ALL electrical connections paying special attention to the charging system. Sounds like a loose connection somewhere if I does it when you bit bumps.

there is not too many combinations of firing order to check.
one coil fires plug 1 and 4
the other coil fires 2 and 3
just turn the flywheel past the pick up for 1,4 and make sure the coils are correct
the only other things that could happen in a straight engine swap are exhaust and inlet gasket leaks and incorrect fuel line , vacumn hose.
I assume all the wiring is replaced in the correct plugs

hmmm, a few posibilities, might well be split cab diaphragms but overhaul should have spotted that. sounds like either too much gas or not enough, either flooding/gassing up or fuel starvation. could try running it without the aire filter too see what happens. it should run weak so if bike is better then you have too much gas, if bike worse then runnig weak to start with. I have seen this before with one particular cause.... petrol tap was leaking, gas runs past pistons when bike not running, soaks past and into crankcases. as breather recycles vapour back in to air box, when bike warm it's as rich sas hell. take of oil filler cap on engine and have a good sniff. you should smell only oil, if it's a strong smell of petrol, change oil and filter, dump petrol tap or see if new seals available.
