Hi all, 

I’ve got a 1999 xvs1100 I’ve just bought. 
 

Sadly it has a misfire from the front cylinder it improves when the bike warms up. Ive also noticed a strange click clack noise coming from the exhaust connected to that cylinder when you rev the bike. 
 

Changed the plugs, slight improvement. 
 

Could it be the coil? I can’t seem to find anywhere to buy them in the UK??

Are your carbs in sync? Did you check the jets if they are somehow clocked up (I personally use 100octane fuel (Slovenia) and from time to time add some STP additive to clean the system)...what millage do you have on it, perhaps also check the valve clearance.
