Horrible idling and riding

Firstly I'm struggling to start the bike. Battery is perfect but I have to click the starter button 10 - 15 times before it actually starts.

Second my idling sounds horrific. I changed the one ignition coil as one was faulty and it sounded like a twin. RPM's jumping slightly.

Don't know about the starter but could the idling be due to a cam chain and tensioner that needs to be replaced?

I've got a video but I see I can upload vids on here unfortunately.

Any advice I would really appreciate, thanks.

2012 Agusta Brutale 920
30 000km on the clock.

Spark plugs ??? Have they been replaced yet?
Not a cam chain.
How does it run above idle?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

go back over the work that you did and make sure that you haven’t forgotten to connect something, and have everything in its correct position.
Also make sure that all the rubber hoses are in one piece and have no leaks.

Spark plugs are new and it sounds the same above idling. The bike is definitely not running smooth.

Where would I find the rubber hoses? (Sorry still learning).

This has unfortunately been an issue for a while now. Thought it was a ignition coil as one was definitely faulty, but seems like it something else as well.

From what I could see all connections were in.

Where can I upload a video file so someone can actually hear the noise?

Thanks Majmv, didn't think about that.



Hope this helps. Let me know if I should take a different video.

Maybe just a vacuum leak?

Could be a vacuum leak for the horrible idling?? But if my knowledge is right I think the bike not starting is another issue unrelated to the idling
