No...I believe you only need 3 cylinders on a 10R to out run the cops....he could have had that problem before his little get away. :idea: :lol::helmet:

howd you come to this conclusion exactly? felt it running like crap i take it. the only reason i ask is because back in the day my buddys 01 F4i was pulling fine, he took it apart for routine maintenance and found a coil had been completely shot along w the plug.

3 dont sound like 4

Guys, The bike has run perfecy up to this point. Anybody riding a 10 that cant tell the difference when a plug is fouled needsa to be riding something else. And I have another question at what mileage intervals do the 05 get valve adjustments. One dealer told me 12 k another 18 k .Good God a dealer should know. Also both said 4 hrs minimum labor on this On the plug change one said one hour labor and the other said 11/2 hours. So I will do it myself. Hopefully. :dontknow:
