Since owning my tornado its been a love hate love affair with core plug going and it uses so much fuel i'm looking at travelling round with a petrol tanker . latest thing is below 3,000rpm it cuts onto two cylinders and chimes back in and runs great all the way to the redline,work commitments had made it not possible to take plugs out,change drain on air box which i'm sure will cure it as per mentioned on here. I did think with a thrash that if it was water collecting in a plug it would clear but nope extensive period at triple figures for few minutes still runs crap at low revs but took my anger away (clear road of course). I love the bike but i did shout the other night in frustration "5,000 miles and its running like a bag of crap ! its going on ebay".just bought new riding kit to go with it so dont know but i'll get the plugs changed and clean up coils et'c and hope it runs better. something else is clocks have come up with H2O and flashing red warning light but waters fine and after removing battery lead it resets and hasn't appeared again for a while - guess its a clock or sensor thing ! ho hum .:bawl: .After three aprilia milles i'm used to italian foibles but not with such regularity.
