My XR has been feeling like one cylinder is struggling for awhile, but only on low throttle. Rode her 3 hrs north last week, and on the way back it got worse, and near home she was really popping along on one. Get the revs up and throttle open and all is good, goes as well as ever.
Before I left I put new, gapped plugs and new leads on, thinking that's sure to be the problem...
Some ideas I've been readying for:
- compression check. I don't think that's it, but I'll check that first
- injector semi-blocked. Can I remove them and put them in the wife's ultrasonic cleaner?
- in-tank filter. I've got a replacement, so I'll go ahead & change that
Any other suggestions? Not into single cylinder motorbikes any more...
Appreciate any hints, or the experience of others
