intermittent fueling @ cylinder 2 on 06 K12s
well my adventure keeps going with this animal. finally got it back after replacing the rear drive unit(26 days at dealer) and all was going well. even took a trip to Detroit to watch the lions get their only win this year. she ran great..42mpg, avg speed around 95,1254 total miles and 9 hours of heaven each way. that was a little over 2 weeks ago, and yesterday began as always... start her up, warm up for about 2 mins(time to gear up) and off we go. first mile was cool, but at next light(1 mile up,around 50mph) she starts to hesitate and #2 drops out. so the rest of the way to work its a 3 cylinder bike. at hiway speeds(55-75) she tried to clear up, but anytime you ask for more gas she bucks and resists and at lights and low speeds(10-35) she is a nightmare. had plugs changed at 18k(now at 23k) and have been running 92-93 octane from same 2 stations. this happened in the middle of a tank, and i ride everyday so its not like she sits for more than 12 hours at a time. cant check plugs to see if fouled cause of radiator, and cant really take it to the shop right now so any ideas? should I try to run something like sea foam thru the fuel to clean injectors, or will this take some wrenching? I am moving in 4 weeks so if I cant fix it I will take her with me wounded and find a shop in my new local that may be able to help. speaking of that, any good BMW shops around Phoenix Arizona.
