Hey dude,

It's probably the condenser or your insulation on the spark plug wire is busted. That happened to me. Went to the gas station to fill it up, coming back home it started to backfire. I was stumped. Checked EVERYTHING! Then I was working on it one night and I saw sparks coming from the frame and to the spark plug wire. BAD INSULATION. The wire was too short and it was getting bent. 2$ fixed that :)

As far as everything else goes, I have a pollini exhasut on mine, sounds pretty cool, gives me a bit more speed, and lets me keep the pedals. I also have the 13.13 dellorto with a pollini airfilter. I also machined down the variator spacer for more speed. One thing though, the grande is all in pieces and I gotta put it back together asap :D
