Please HELP!

Staring with the back story. Ride every day, in all weather, coast to coast, Mex to Can. That siad, this bike has had it's share of road time in the 1.5 years I have owned it. I've covered 50k miles in that time.

Ok, idles like it is randomly, quickly dropping a cylinder. Stalls out while idling or pulling in clutch, so every time I stop. I assumed the injectors were dirty, because when I use Lucas cleaner it ran better.

I sent the injectors off to get cleaned professionally. Put them back in, idled beautifuly for 20ish seconds then back to crappy idle.

Additional info. The bike is slow the bring the revs down. Rev up to 8k and they drop to 4kish and stay there for a moment then idle around 1100.

PC 5 w/autotune , GPR slipon, K&N filters, de snorkeled.

PLEASE HELP!

Thanks for all the help -_-

I used an infrared temp gun to read the temp of the exhaust headers. Three pipes red around 545 degrees. While one of them was 470. See the difference?

I ordered a coil from beemer boneyard and a set of plugs from euro moto electrics.

Put everything in and now it's like butter. Other than my clutch clunking like a mofo at idle.

Hope this helps.

Good job on diagnosing problem coil pack and which one. You might go the European kbike forum. Someone there recently replaced clutch pack with a Barnett set. He reported that he just cleaned up the basket with a file and put in new plates. Reported that it's smooth as butta and much better than when it was new with oem part.
