Re: hesitation after startup, slight missing
I had the exact same thing on my 885KCSTQ, I forget the name of the hose
(crankcase vent or something), but on mine if your looking at the engine, it
is a large hose that comes up off the crankcase. Mine had collapsed and a
hole had formed. I replaced it and everything was fine. I could also
squeeze the hose and cover the hole and it would run much better. I can
find the part#'s if you need them.
