Backfired

Hi new to this forum found you all when googling for answers

I started the SP1, rode out of the garage and then a backfire and now seems to be running on one cylinder, have not started to pull it apart or started it again.
Where should I start. Have not got a manual so I"ll just have to wing it.

Not sure if aussie bike is different to USA

easy way to find out if its running on one cylinder. Try starting it up and letting it warm up. touch both exhaust cans to see if they are heating up evenly. too hot means its running lean, cold or slower warm up means its too rich or not firing at all.

do you have a power commander or any other mods? try checking to make sure the exhaust has no leaaks.

No mods(yoshis) never got any revs up just trundling out of the garage think one cylinder not firing after backfire didn't want to start it again until I had a bit more info is there no worries in firing it up if only running on 1 cylinder bikes , done 35000 I have a gut feeling of a failed plug any experience?

I believe you have the UK version vehicles...

As I understand it, the UK version is for all except the US RC51's. I've read that the UK version comes out better when you print it too. The US version I have downloaded, has weak diagrams when I print it.
