K1200s Miss Firing/Hesitation

My 2006 K1200s is misfiring and sputtering if you will. This has happened once before when I washed the bike, but it is like one of the cylinders is intermittently firing and not firing. There is a slight gas odor. When your on the throttle its like the cylinder comes on and off and makes the bike feel really jumpy. Any ideas? Help?

Have you checked the plugs and plug wires? Could it be some bad gas? You may want to try draining the tank, replacing the gas, and add some Techron.

no plug wires on the k12r/s/gt and k13 bikes. coil on plug.

possibly a bad coil or loose connection. but could be several different things.

'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda
