Front Cylinder misfires, Rough Idle, sputters and dies
Ok, so here goes, Last monday drove into work bike ran like a stripe assed ape, got off and started her up for the ride home, turned onto the road and gave it some throttle only to have the bike sputter and had ZERO power, I was running on 1 cylinder, the rear. I backed off the throttle and she perked up? ok, away I went, got to the light and the idle was odd sputtered and died. I restarted and gave it throttle to turn and **** near hit ground again NO power running on 1 cylinder, woohoo 1 cylinder MOPED...I nursed to Wylie Texas all the while dealing with 1 cylinder under throttle 2(sometimes) if I backed off the throttle. pulled the plugs with a buddy of mine and thought the front spark was weak? so I/we replaced them both. started her up and it seemed fixed????
2 days of crappy rain later, I road her into the office today, and altho it seemed ok, the minute the initial warm up idle wears down it's rough, sputtering and dies unless I keep revs up and if I really rev it I can drive but it back fires flames coming out my front cylinders pipe. I have checked the pair valve tubing, unplugged all the connectors I can find inspected them, resealed them with dielectric grease, including the plugs, I sprayed carb cleaner between cylinders(checking for the vacuum leaks) to see if the idle races, no difference.
I am at a loss, if I work upto speed she runs just fine, if rpms drop too low she starts surging sputters and dies. won't idle, goes into fuel saving mode under throttle and fires on 1 cylinder only and I can smell gas when this happens by the way. any Ideas will be entertained, photos of gals optional, I need something to smile about.. bike runs great for 37k miles and then 1 day all **** breaks lose, I would have expected this kinda thing to creep up on me not all at once.
Hard work pays off in the future, but laziness pays off right now
