Is this still an active problem?
'Sorry I didn't see this until now.
Solving problems via internet is hard, but there are several known problem areas with these early K Bikes as they enter middle age.
Fuel - Have you checked the fuel filter and in tank hoses? They are usually shot if original.
Undertank connector for fuel pump and fuel light. Check this - the female connector sleeves are often weakened and will occasionally lose connection, causing the engine miss.
External z hose - if leaking causes really poor performance and is due for replacement.
Let us know.

However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."
