    Hi , I’m new to here, join a very long time ago and have not really been able to get time to look at site properly. My 1999 bird seems to have developed a hiccup which is quite difficult to explain but hope you can help. She runs amazingly for a bike that’s nearly 20 years old with 25k on the clock but has recently developed a stutter - runs fine drops a beat then runs fine again etc. Coz I don’t use her through the winter I thought it could just be dirty fuel so I changed the fuel filter. She been serviced not long ago at 24k but now looking for help , had been suggested it could be a coil ,plugs of fuel pump on it way out?

    Hot / cold?
    RPM range?
    What have you done (if anything) so far bar the filter and fresh fuel?
    Every gear?
    Uphill, downhill?
    Have you got £5.50?

    Please clarify if carb or FI (99 registered potentially covers both models). Also whether it happens all the time, or specifically when the bike is hot or cold. And also (!!) was the bike running properly after the last service.

    The good news is it almost certainly won't be anything complicated or expensive to fix, and will almost certainly have been seen many times before so don't worry too much....... there are at least six things that could potentially be the answer (some model dependant) and none are difficult to diagnose and resolve.

    As per the previous post this site is now independent and relies on sponsorship from those that use the site; £5.50 is a small cost for getting the information from existing sponsors that will almost certainly get your bike back to running sweet........... there is a mountain of experience and knowledge in the Help section that is unlocked upon sponsorship.
