Zorst...I bought a Sprint Sport too from a person that didn't know one end of a bike from another...he used to give it to the local rip off merchant for any work that really needed doing but mostly bodged !!

I'd be tempted to say carbs or valve clearances..could even be carbs out of balance too, I've done more work on this bike than my Speed Triple (S3 owned 6.5 years SS owned 1 year !).

Good news is it's comfy, quick, practical and is even good looking...well to the owner ;-)

Additional information.

When i took the spark plugs out......

The plugs from cylinders one and two were well carboned up and the plug from cylinder three wasn't.

The HT leads on cylinders one and two were an excellent snap fit (difficult to get off) and the HT lead on cylinder three is a very poor fit (doesn't snap fit)

I'll have to try and find a spare lead to see if it makes a difference.
Mine did that too.. Sprint manufacturing sell HT leads for them ;-)
