Check spark plug caps to make sure they are both on tight and connected
good to coil wires.

Subject: Breaking-up/sputtering under load

Did a track day at NJMP/Thunderbolt yesterday, which was great fun until
the
bike started acting up (which, unfortuantely, was mid-way through second
session).

The bike feels like it's missing in various parts of the RPM range,
which
changes slightly depending on which gear the bike is in. It often misses
between
5 and 6k, then again between 8 and 9k. Won't climb above 7k in top gear.
Seems
to run fine at idle and through rev range when parked. Only slight blip
between
5-6k in first gear.

Has something similar happened before to anyone here? Any ideas where I
should
start?

Thanks,
