Engine Missing...

My engine seemed to be missing out (not as in stolen) this morning whenever I got on the throttle a couple times on the way to work. I have an R6 and just installed a K&N air filter about 3 weeks ago on my 02 R6 but it's run fine since then.

Does anyone know what I could try? I changed the plugs in December so I don't think that is it. Maybe some carb cleaner?

What is a good shop on the SW side?

Thanks in advance...

Take the plugs out and look at them?

Test the coils with a screwdriver?

Are the carbs fully seated? (air intake boots secured?)

Was it running fine before you installed the K&N?
On the R6's I don't really recommend using a K&N.
Is the bike all stock otherwise?
How many miles are on it? When was the last time the plugs were changed / carbs synched?

It was running fine before I installed the K&N and fine for 50 miles afterward. It still runs fine until I get on it at low RPM's.

It's stock other than a D&D exhaust.

It has 14,000 miles and I changed the plugs in December. I'm not sure about getting the carbs sync'ed cause I got the bike last February. Maybe never...

How much does that cost to sync the carbs?

Check all your vacuum lines you may have knocked one loose when you were installing the filter.
