Unusual misfire when cold.
OK, some of the time lately, when I start my 1.6TS from fully cold, after about 30 seconds it begins running on less than 4 pistons, after another 30 seconds it's clear again.
I've got plenty of ideas as to what it might be, I'm basically looking to see if anyone else has seen exactly this problem on a twinny.
For those who are interested in speculating: The smoothness of the misfire makes me think it's running on 2, either 1 and 4 or 2 and 3. The power is on-off-on-off as it recovers, so I'm thinking some combination of coil failures, certainly something electrical. It's been suggested the head gasket could be leaking between 2 and 3, but Its been like this for a really long time now and I don't like to conclude HGF with only one symptom. The BBoB is sound, I replaced that section of the loom down to about 18" back down the wire with new wire, relays, fuses and sockets not so long back.
