    One of the few bikes I'd buy again.....Yep done that! This is my third (long story)

    It's heavy because it's built like a tank!
    How did you "cure" the mis-fire? I got some bad fuel last week in Spain and the misfire is a real p.i.t.a! As the fuel dilutes does it disappear or does the fuel filter need cleaning ? thanks

    You could try a fuel stabiliser - Yamalube or similar maybe.

    However, misfires on a Super10 are often caused by the coil sticks either corroding/failing, or water ingress from heavy rain/pressure washing. Have you checked for codes?

    Took it to my independent mechanic......Bolton Motorcycle Workshop in Belmont

    He had to remove the fuel pump and clean it. Surprisingly this is not mentioned in the service schedule

    Then, on his recommendation I put some Silkolene Pro FST Fuel System Treatment into the tank to clear out any remaining crap from the injectors

    Came home running like a dream and still does.

    As I get him to check for corrosion on the coil sticks at every 6k service I ask him to clean the petrol filters at the same time

    Although this video is in Italian(!!!!) I think you will find it useful
