Kcfirebolt - There is a chain of shops around here, "Cyclegear", that will insure tires against punctures. Seems like it was maybe $20 for the life of a tire or there abouts.

I have a 1999 Buell M2 with a borla exhaust and a performance ignition. Whenever I start the bike it only runs on one cylinder until it fully warms up. Sometimes its on the front cylinder and sometimes on the rear. Which ever cylinder isn't firing I'll take the spark plug cap off and hold it slightly above the spark plug while the engine is running. While i do this the bike begins to run on both cylinders and you can see the spark arcing from the cap to the plug. After holding the cap above the plug and giving it small amounts of gas for a few seconds I can put the plug cap back on the spark plug and It will run fine. I have replaced the plugs and wires and it has not helped. Is the ignition or the chip messed up? Please Help!!!!!

Post your question in the Knowledge Vault section under an appropriate category (Engine or, well, engine) and you'll probably get a better response. It sounds like you may have a weak coil or a bad ground, but that's just a raw guess. Pulling the wire and increasing the gap I'm told increases the voltage somehow to the plug.
