Customer Question

Hi, ive a 1999 tdm850. work done recently is an ignition coil replaced, carbs sonic cleaned and inlet rubbers replaced and now bike is popping/missing out of one exhaust?
Also replaced chain and sprockets due to a real loud knocking from tight spot but knocking occurs when rear axle nut is tightened?

Hi Jerry and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the burn color of the spark plug tip of the cylinder exhibiting the symptoms;
  • • for test test purposes, swap the ignition coils;
  • • ensure correct chain slack and rear axle alignment with the nut is tightened.
