2006 Vride LCR320 missing under load

Recommended Posts

I went out for my 1st run of the season today with my 2006 Vride running a LCR320. It was missing down low under load when taking off but would run fine once up on plane. Where do i start looking?

Do you know if the cap and rotor has ever been replaced?  What about spark plugs and spark plug wires?

I have plugs. was planning on changing them. Could the rotor, cap or wires or even plugs cause it to run rough under load down low. I'd have thought if it was any of those it would effect it all through the rev range. Once up & planning it seems ok

Yes.  Your symptoms point to those pieces in the ignition.  Replace those and you'll be good to go most likely.

If I remember right from my previous Bu (2006 Response, 320 LCR), no rotor, no cap.

Change the plugs, check the spark wires (especially the contacts) and run some injector cleaner.

Yeper even with low hours the cap and rotor will go bad. I also would start with them.

Thanks for the help guys. As usual the Crew was right. Cap & rotor needed cleaning. Did that & put it back together, went for a run yesterday & all back to normal. I do still have the plugs to change, but figured whilst shes running fine I'd just leave them for now. Glad I didn't race out & buy a new cap & rotor or leads yet. But on that note, when (what hours) should these be changed?

Cheers shawndoggy. I did have a read of the manual & you are right. I just wondered what everyone actually does???

Can't speak for anyone else but I'm on a 4 year rotation for cap, rotor, wires, and thermostat.  I changed them all after I bought my boat primarily as preventative maintenance.  I'd much rather spend a few dollars early than have to get towed and ruin an entire day on the lake due to a bad part.  I'm also doing 2-year replacement for v-drive fluid, transmission fluid, impeller, fuel filter, and spark plugs.

I do 3 years for everything except wires and plugs.  Wires are still original and plugs once three years ago only to delete platinum's.  Impeller gets visually inspected annually.  Still on #2 with like new #1 in the glove box if needed again.
