Lumpy Idle

My K75S suddenly devloped an uneven idle - kind of hunting. Everything is fine otherwise.
I checked the plugs are OK.

Could be a vacuum leak. Check the oil breather and the little caps on the inlet manifold as well as the vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator.

Thanks Phil, it was the little rubber caps all cracked up. Have wound some tape round for now until I get around to changing. A nice easy fix for once!
