G'day All. Just fishing here for something I might not have thought about. '98 Honda Hornet 600, 43,000km, known the bike for 3.5 years (owned it one month) and no problems (was ridden two times a week). Been mostly sitting this year (hence sold to me), done 3500km trouble free in last month, but... Today, two-up, an hour non-stop from Altona slowly over the bridge and then in stop start traffic around the city. Idle begins mildly, noticeably wavering (say 800 - 1300, up and down, up and down). Feels now and then like will stall (falls somewhere below 1000rpm). Then starts to stall now and then, when coming off the throttle, but also feels like it will when sitting (but if I blipped it idle stabilises) - so, problem happening in slow stop start riding (fine at any stable speed). Then, does a very very mild backfire - more of a gentle 'pop off' such a child does, intermittently, in the stop start stuff. On heat, was at bar three of the five little thin bars (about two-thirds up the heat register?), and when I stopped I noticed the fan had come on. About 20 degrees out there? (Melb) Stalled a couple of times in the past, at slow speed, having just come off throttle. Usually run 91 octane, put 95 in there first time yesterday (mate always ran 91). Mate always ran without baffle in the Staintune, but I have it permanently in (we know nothing of PO and so of jetting etc - got it from Spot On). Normally idles fine. Just had major $1000 service (whatever that's worth?) Thinking simple: Will put carb cleaner through Will check the plug colour (where the hell are they???) - hard to determine yet if lean or rich Maybe throttle cable adjustment could be better (rolling off too far) Any ideas, Hornet experiences of this type? I look at my SR when there's a problem and think, Whatever!; but this bike frightens me!
