I have had this problem for months... usually worse in wet weather.


Ill be riding along OK, brake as im pulling up to lights or traffic, as im brakeing I can hear the engine dying, and if it doesnt cut right out when i come to a stop then it will die down and cut out or sometimes regain when i give it throttle...


im stumped

When you take the plug out, clean it up with emery cloth or a soft wire brush, and wack it back in. Fire it up, take it for a ride. Then take the plug out again. the colour and texture of the electrodes can tell you alot about how the engine's running.
