Well, bike was running great. 1. Stopped and fueled up.
2. Backfired when I hit the starter.
3. Missed real bad all the way home (50 miles). Thought I had some carbon on a plug due to the backfire.
4. Changed plugs. 5.
Still missing an popping an not revving up.
6. Checked my fuel and found mostly water in tank. I missed the symptom of bad fuel due to it backfired and missed instantly after the fuel up. My mind told me it wasn't the fuel because it happened so quick. Guess I am getting old! Any way, I am in the wind again. Should hit the BIG 5 0 (50,000 miles) by the 1st week of March. Maybe I will send a photo when she hits 50K.
Moral of the story "REMEMBER THE BASICS---spark, fuel, and air.
