Customer Question

My 2000 Roadstar 1600 has ran fine for the year I have owned it. It has a set of Vance & Hines long shots with no baffles and has been re jetted. However... Just this week it has started back firing and idling rough. What should I do ? Plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, carb cleaning ?????? Thanks for your help ! Bryan

Hi and thank you for the question.

I suggest a little investigative diagnostics first. Let's pull the sparks plugs out and see what they look like.

I would also like to know if any repairs or service work has been done to the cycle recently. Or has it been sitting un-used for awhile? Please share any details no matter how insignias unrelated they seem to be, it may help speed up the repair process.
