Hi to all, I have recently bought a 2016 V9 Roamer with 5K miles dissapointed with the handling but after fitting fork cartridges and changing rear shocks and tyres it is now as a guzzi should be. Unfortunately it has now developed a servere misfire, being old school I dont understand modern electrics and fuel injection. Can anyone offer advise before I spend all my kids inheritance and loose all my hair Unhappy  Thanks

Well the obvious is change the plugs and put a decent ose of injector cleaner in the tank and run it again.

The other possibility is the Phase sensor, they can become contaminated with swarf and cause a misfire.

Ethanol free fuel will not stop the injectors from clogging.

This is not a constant misfire but will try injector cleaner but do feel that the phase sensore may now be the culprit but dont know were it is located.Confused

Just a guess, on the bell housing somewhere.
