Bike not runinng right this morning

Edit: just read my subject again... (which was "Bike missing this morning") missing as not running right, not actually missing from the garage! Changed the subject

Started up ok, but got up the road and running really rough down from 0-4000rpm. Runs fine when you open it up.. A couple of quick videos:

I gave it a wash yesterday before putting back in the garage, but very careful with water. Sounds to me like a fouled plug?

We are at 30+k so the plugs are going to be replaced anyway.

Simon

Cheers, Simon

Hey Simon, does sound like a cyclinder is off - plug issue would be mine first area to check.

I had much the same but it was a coil. But the plugs are the first stop. Easy to check both while your in there.

So an interesting find here as I was taking the plugs out... 3rd from the left (whilst sitting on bike) basically unscrewed by hand. The rest all needed a bit of pressure. Added to this, there was slight browning of the bottom of the ceremic part of the plug in all but the 3rd.

Cheers, Simon

After pulling apart, checking (and then doing all) valve clearances, the bike is back piece with new spark plugs, new oil and oil filter and new MWR performance air filter.

Started first pop and running better than it was before. The throttle is less snatchy down low and normal mode now feels like sport mode thanks for the assistance

Cheers, Simon
