2008 V strom 650 running on front cylinder only
I bought my 2nd v strom 650 , 2008 model with 33,000 miles showing that is running only on the front cylinder. (The price reflected the condition – previous owner bought a new sports bike GSXR 650 – and moved on – while I have a habit of buying bikes that need a little love – This makes # 38 in the 5 years)
I just got it yesterday so I’ve not gotten too far. Here is what I found so far. 175 psi on both cylinders.
1. Have spark on both cylinders and swapped the coils just to be sure. The front continued to run with the coil swap and the rear is not.
2. The rear plugs where black and looked gas covered so I swapped plugs front to back and the front continued to fire while the back is not.
3. Now I’m thinking perhaps the fuel injector for the rear cylinder might be stuck open somehow flowing way to much gas to fire.
Anyone here run across this in the past and fixed it. (I’ll sort it out but thought I’d see if anyone on this forum has already been through this one?)
