THanks again to all.

The bike misses in a tight corner but also sometime on the straight and level. It is very intermitted on the straight and level but ALWAYS in a very tight 10mph switchback and it comes right back to full power as soon as you apply the throttle after the turn.

I have thought it might be something in an injector.

I had a good mechanic look at the bike but he could never get it to miss when he was riding it. So he tuned it up and remapped the (?) fuel, ignition, etc and it ran fine for about 6 months then started doing the same thing again. (some crud in the tank?)

Still riding and looking. (I can live with the miss.) I can't live without my Wing!

have you tried resetting the ECM

set the bike on the center stand.
start it.....but don't touch anything
let it run until the fans come on..... then imidiately turn it off
wait a few minutes then restart it

I have to do this to mine about every 6 months seems like..... doesn't seem to stumble after that for a while

Does it do it more in one direction, or is it any tight turn?

Thanks for the question. Answer: I don't know. I never thought of that.

When the snow is gone from Wyoming and Spring is in the air, I'll test that and let you know. I'm guessing about 4 weeks at least.

Thanks again for the question. CK
