sputter

Recommended Posts

Shimmed valves today because bike would not start. After valve adjustment it started right up. After about 45 minutes of pretty hard riding it started to sputter and then cut off. Starts back after it cuts off. Could this still be a valve problem or possibly an ignition problem. When i take the spark plug out to test spark it is intermitent.

You probably knocked the coil or ground wire loose under the tank, when you removed it.
