Hi all. Thanks to advice from previous problem about bike not starting after diesel error. new set of plugs and she fired up, but now is miss firing but seems alright at higher speeds. Making town riding hard work. Tryed pulling the leads of 1 at a time to see if theres an error on one cylinder but doesnt seem to change anything. Any ideas would be greatfully receive.

As vulcanrider states,slow running jets or pilot jets really sound partly blocked.I don`t know if an additive will work but could be something on the market.

Dodgy Slow-running

Try a tank of Shell V-power and, if that doesn't do the trick, some Fuel Injector additive (even though its a carb model) - a tip from a local Triumph mechanic.
