Hi all, The VFR has developed a few interesting issues in the last few days. 1. It now decides when it will idle. I tried to video the problem but naturally it didn't occur when i wanted it to, only at every set of lights on the way home and every other time i've stopped today. Basically the way it has been idling is normal but with what seems like a misfire at a regular interval. This ranges in its intensity, starting at a mild pop to an complete engine cut-out. My theory is a fouled plug, but i'd like to have other peoples opinions before i start removing tanks. 2. It won't start all the time. It's not a battery issue; what happens is that i'll do the above stalling thing then not start straight away afterwards. If it's in gear, i'll pull the clutch in hit the starter and nothing. I then turn the key on and off, play around with the gears going between neutral 1st and 2nd and then eventually between 10 seconds and a minute, it will decide to crank again. 3. Occasionally when i hit the starter, the lights on the dash cut out for several seconds and come back on afterwards (this is after i have released the starter button; the lights stay black and come on after a few seconds). This also varies in it's intensity from a few seconds to over 15. It seems like a short, but it is a highly inconsistent one. Further, moving the bike back and forth seems to help the problem (while the engine is off obviously). This moving also helps problem number 2. I have had the stator rewound around a month ago and the issue is becoming more and more pronounced. Despite the battery obviously being charged (when it does crank it always cranks strong and consistently and starts with no hassle) leaving it on trickle charge overnight seems to temporarily alleviate the problem. So. Thoughts? I have no money ATM so can't take it in anywhere. I'm hoping for an easy fix; if not, i think i might just sell the bike (along with the Across) and buy a DR650 or DRZ400 which i think is looking like a good option Thanks for your help guys.
