Can anybody tell me if the triples suffer from carb icing?Coming to work today,engine misfiring and would not idle.The throttle felt very heavy and unresponsive,also_Over 3500 rpm would clear up and be OK.The weather was foggy and around zero degrees.Does this sound like the symptoms to expect?One extra thought,switched off at work,clocked in,then restarted after no more than two minutes,the bike ran absolutely fine. Idled properly and revved up correctly

When i had my Thunder Ace YZF1000R someone on one of the forums had problems with carb icing as well.
In the end he solved it with a small 12 volt bulb he attached inside the air box.
this is the link to te site just click on the topic.
From what I understod it solved his problem.
I had the same thoughts about having a bulb in the air box with gas fumes maybe someone here knows ??
