Bit of a weird one. My Bandit would stop firing for a second or two, then go again (and often backfire on the unburned fuel) on a particular section of the M1 north from the Gold Coast to Brisbane. Disconcerting on a freeway full of tailgating c0cks. I wondered whether it was the throttle just slipping in my hand, or me losing attention. I wondered whether the reg/rec might be on it's way out. Set out to ride to Toowoomba yesterday, and it nearly got bad enough to make me turn back. Scared of getting stranded. But then it went away. And, thinking it through, I realised it's not alien emanations in that sector of the M1. It's that I usually fill up with fuel before making the trip to Brisbane! The issue is associated with a full tank. Guess I can just keep the tank a little less full - and the internets have some info about cleaning fuel tank vent hoses. Any other suggestions, though, in relation to what is still a pretty tentative diagnosis, would be very welcome.
