Right Cylinder Running Hot + Backfire 1100GS
Right cylinder seems to be running hotter than left. I've noticed this when riding in sandals (Yes - I know!). My right foot gets REALLY hot. Seems to be a bit more heat discolouration around the RH intake too. Riding in boots I don't notice.
Also, the engine is backfiring a bit on the overrun. It may be the crappy Nepali/Indian petrol I'm using. I'm presently up into the Himalayan foot-hills too.
Otherwise - it's running well. Did valve clearances and synchro'ed TBs so it goes very well. Plugs are in good nick and the right colour. Oil is fine and running at normal temp on the gauge. Throttle cables properly seated.
Is this heat problem normal? Is it related to the backfiring? Is there nothing to worry about?
